Georgetown and coach Patrick Ewing suffered a late defection from their roster.

Tre Campbell, a 6-foot-2 point guard, will leave the team, but remain on scholarship with the Hoyas, the school announced Wednesday.

“We thank Tre for his contributions to Georgetown basketball and wish him well in his future endeavors,” Ewing said in a statement.

Campbell played 14 minutes per game last season for the Hoyas, but he appeared in just two of Georgetown’s last eight games after suffering a knee injury he sustained when the team’s bus was involved in a traffic accident in February.

“The only thing that’s clear in my head is the impact and just looking and seeing their car rolling,” then-coach John Thompson III said at the time of the accident, according to the Washington Post. “That image is etched in my brain.”

Campbell averaged 3.4 points and 1.3 assists per game as a junior.

Georgetown will remain at 12 scholarships, leaving one open, for the 2017-18 campaign.
