Purdue sophomore guard Bryson Scott will transfer, the school announced on Monday. 

Scott averaged 3.8 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.2 assists this season for the Boilermakers. He will have two years of eligibility remaining at a new school.

"We thank Bryson for his two years here and wish him well as he pursues his education and basketball career at another institution," Purdue coach Matt Painter said in a release. "Bryson has expressed his interest in transferring from our program and we have granted him his release."

TAYLOR: Favored Kentucky no lock for title

As a freshman in 2013-14, Scott scored 6.2 points per game and added 2.6 rebounds. Scott was a four-star recruit coming out of high school and was ranked as the No. 75 player nationally.

Scott did not play in Purdue's final three games of the 2014-15 season. The Boilermakers were a No. 9 seed in the NCAA tournament and lost to Cincinnati in the Round of 64.
