According to a release from the school, Arizona Wildcats freshman forward Craig Victor has decided that he will transfer.

Victor has only seen the court in eight games so far this season, averaging seven minutes, three points, and one rebound in those appearances.

"We wish Craig Victor and his family well," Arizona head coach Sean Miller said in a statement released Tuesday afternoon.

Miller had attributed Victor's lack of playing time to the fact that Brandon Ashley returned to Tucson this season after suffering a season-ending broken foot on February 1st, 2014 against Cal.

On December 15th, Victor had the following to say about his lack of playing time:

"I understand what I came into with Brandon being hurt and coming back. It's just a plus for me, cuz next year, the teams aren't really going to have any scouting reports. I know I'm really getting better. That's all that matters. Helping other guys get better too by competing every day. My games are played in practice. So you would probably say I don't play much, but I've played close to thirty-some games already, cuz that's just how practice is for me."

And then he had this to say about what his family thought of the situation:

"My line of communication to that is close. I'm just trying to win like everybody else is trying to win. Other people understand that if I went somewhere else, I would be playing. But that's not the case with me. I just want to win and be on a winning team."

Apparently Victor had been suspended for Arizona's game at UTEP a couple of weeks ago as well.

So where will he go?
