St. John's head men's basketball coach Norm Roberts announced that rising sophomore forward Qa'rraan Calhoun (Hazlet, N.J.) has withdrawn from the University and plans to transfer to another institution for the 2007-08 season.
"Qa'rraan and his family have made the decision for him to transfer," said Roberts. "He leaves the team in good academic standing, and we wish him the best of luck with his decision."
"This has been a difficult decision to make," said Calhoun. "But I feel it is what is best for me and my family right now. I want to thank Coach Roberts and the coaching staff for the opportunities they gave me here at St. John's, and my teammates as well."
Calhoun played in all 31 of St. John's games in 2006-07 as a freshman, and drew 10 starts, averaging 5.9 points per game and 4.0 rebounds in 22.5 minutes.
