Andrew White III played limited time as a sophomore, and would do so again as a junior at Kansas.

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) Guard Andrew White III is transferring from Kansas in search of more playing time after two seasons in which he failed to break into the regular rotation.

Jayhawks coach Bill Self announced White's decision in a statement Thursday night.

White played in 25 games as a freshman and showed a deft touch from the perimeter, but he got lost in the mix last season, averaging just 5.9 minutes while appearing in 19 games.

White said that Self told him "it would be questionable to break into the rotation," so he decided to explore other options. White did not say where he would transfer.

His decision came one week after starting point guard Naadir Tharpe announced he would transfer closer to his home in Massachusetts for his final year of eligibility.
