IOWA CITY -- Red-shirt freshman forward Kyle Meyer has elected to transfer to another school to continue his basketball career, Iowa Coach Fran McCaffery announced Tuesday.

Meyer, who stands 6-foot-10, played in 12 games this year. He scored six points, had four assists, 15 rebounds and six turnovers in 49 total minutes. He will have three years of eligibility remaining.

“Kyle and I had a healthy discussion at the conclusion of the season,” McCaffery said in a statement. “Ultimately he has decided to pursue more playing time and a larger role at another institution. Kyle has great work ethic and tremendous character, and will be a valuable teammate wherever he decides to go. We appreciate his hard work and positive attitude the last two years. Kyle has a bright future and we will assist him any way we can.”

Meyer, who hails from Alpharetta, Ga., was the first of five members to commit to the 2012-13 men's basketball class. He red-shirted his first season and played sparingly last year.

Iowa now has two scholarships available for this fall class.
