University of Pittsburgh Panthers' freshman forward Khem Birch has decided to transfer from the school, according to a CBSSports.com report. Birch has started six games for Pitt, but his diminishing playing time may have led to the decision.

"I'm leaving," Birch told CBSSports.com on Friday night. "I'm headed to Toronto now. I enjoyed my time at Pittsburgh, I love Coach (Jamie) Dixon, had no problems with the staff and the players. It just wasn't the right fit for me." Birch has not given any indication of where he plans to transfer.
