UConn men’s basketball forward Rakim Lubin is transferring, his mother announced on Twitter Monday afternoon.
“We have officially opened Rocks recruiting for 2015-2016,” Sabrina Lubin tweeted. “I love the coaches, team, staff n Huskie fans but we must move on.”
She also mentioned that they will be looking at other Division I schools.
A friend of Lubin’s said the freshman forward was unhappy with his playing time when he was playing well.
Lubin appeared in 24 games for the Huskies, averaging 6.5 minutes per game. The 6-foot-8-inch forward from Miami averaged one point and 1.2 rebounds per game.
His playing time did increase in March, when he took on a big role in the American Athletic Conference tournament. With Kentan Facey sidelined by a concussion, Lubin played 10.25 minutes per game during the four-game tournament in Hartford, helping UConn to the championship game.
With Lubin transferring, UConn has 11 scholarship players for next season, including incoming freshmen Jalen Adams and Steve Enoch.
UConn has yet to comment on Lubin’s decision.
