Head Coach Steve Prohm announced today that Murray State guard Zay Jackson has decided to leave the program immediately and transfer to another school for the spring semester.

“I want to thank Coach Prohm for giving me an opportunity to play basketball at Murray State and for his support during my time as a Racer,” said Jackson.  With my injury causing me to miss a second season now, I just believe a fresh start would be good for me at this time.”

“It’s been a tough couple of years for Zay with his injury this season and the circumstances causing him to miss last season, stated Prohm. “I understand his decision and wish him the best in his academic and basketball future.”

Jackson missed all of last season following an incident in a Wal-Mart parking lot the summer before, which led to a suspension and jail time. He was expected back this year, before tearing his ACL and LCL while dunking in a early practice sidelined the guard for another season.

Murray State had planned to seek a medical hardship for Jackson, which is given by the NCAA would have allowed Jackson three remaining years of eligibility when he returned to the court next year.

No word on where Jackson may transfer.
