Twins Cody and Caleb Martin are transferring from North Carolina State, their stepfather told The News & Observer’s Joe Giglio.

“They felt like they didn’t fit into the offensive scheme,” the twins’ stepfather Jared Eure told Giglio. “They loved playing at N.C. State, and in the ACC, but ultimately they wanted to try something different.”

Both guards, Caleb averaged 11.5 points and 4.7 rebounds this season, while Cody posted six points and 4.4 rebounds per game.

“Through a series of honest, thoughtful and somewhat surprising conversations we have had in the days since our season ended, Caleb and Cody have informed me of their desire to explore options that they believe are in both of their best interests,” Wolfpack coach Mark Gottfried said in a statement. “While I don’t share all of their views, I have certainly come to understand and respect the unique dynamic and special bond that exists between identical twins, especially when they play the same sport for the same team. I enjoyed coaching them over the past two years.”
