Croaker has appeared in five games this season, averaging 9.4 minutes per. He was unable to crack Texas' backcourt rotation even after starting point guard Isaiah Taylor was lost for 4-6 weeks with a broken wrist on Nov. 20.
He played a season-high 23 minutes vs. Saint Francis on Nov. 25, but played only a combined four minutes in two of the Longhorns' subsequent four games, sitting out two entirely.
A former four-star recruit for Texas in 2013, Croaker started two games as a freshman last season, vs. BYU and DePaul. He averaged 3.3 points in 9.5 per minutes per game and scored a career-high 15 points against Oklahoma.
According to the Austin American-Statesman, Croaker is expected to transfer somewhere closer to home in Orlando, Fla., so that he can be closer to his young son.
