UAB is losing rising sophomore guard Jarvis Calhoun to transfer, a source confirmed to NBCSports.com. The 6-foot-0 native of Alabama didn’t see much playing time during the 2014-15 season and with the Blazers returning all five starters, playing time would have been tough to come by this season.
Calhoun scored a season-high three points against UCLA this season and had a total of five points and two rebounds during the season. This is probably the best move for both parties, as Calhoun can get a fresh start at another school with more playing time, while the Blazers get another scholarship to use on the recruiting trail.
A prolific high school scorer from the Birmingham area, in Trussville, Alabama, Calhoun missed some time during his senior year with injury and has never received enough playing time to regain his form.
