Marques Johnson to transfer from N.C. State

Wral Reports.

Guard Marques Johnson has decided to transfer from NC State, and will not be a part of the Wolfpack men’s basketball team for the upcoming 2008-09 season.

“Marques felt it would be in his best interest to take advantage of an opportunity somewhere else,” said head coach Sidney Lowe. “He definitely has handled himself with as much class as anybody that I’ve been around since he has been at NC State.”

Johnson transferred to N.C. State from Tennessee for the spring semester in 2007, and completed only one season with the Pack. The 6-goot-6 guard saw action in 21 games after having to miss the first eight contests due to NCAA transfer rules.
This isn't a huge surprise given it started looking like he was the 3rd point in the rotation this coming year and with more guards on the way. Still pretty odd to see someone transfer twice. You have to expect a few transfers as Sidney tried to build a team quickly and now works to upgrade the talent level, but let's hope not too many.

Thank goodness. He frees up a scholarship. The guy couldn't guard paint drying.The only time he was effective was when he drove to the hoop.

I think I heard Georgia State. If they are a Division II school he won't have to sit out.
