Xavier sophomore guard will transfer


Xavier sophomore guard Brandon Randolph is leaving the program and will transfer, a source confirmed to NBCSports.com. The 6-foot-1 native of California saw his playing time cut to 9.7 minutes per game in 23 contests this season.

Randolph averaged 2.4 points and 1.2 assists per game and shot 45 percent from the field and 54 percent from 3-point range.

Regarded as a three-star prospect coming out of high school, according to Rivals, Randolph also took an official visit to Missouri during the recruiting process, but that was under former head coach Frank Haith. That means it could be a rather fresh start for Randolph when he’s looking for a new program.
