Texas guard Sheldon McClellan will transfer to another school at the completion of the spring semester, school officials announced today. McClellan, who averaged 13.5 points per game, was benched on multiple occasions by coach Rick Barnes because of what Barnes perceived as a lack of defensive intensity. On two separate occasions, McClellan played only one minute in a conference game (at TCU, at Iowa State) by coach’s decision.
In a statement announcing his decision, McClellan said: “I want to thank everyone who supported me … I enjoyed my time at Texas. I just need a change of venue.”
