COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) Freshman forward Raymond Doby is leaving South Carolina, the latest roster change for the Gamecocks and coach Frank Martin.
Martin said Wednesday that he and Doby, cited for marijuana possession last month, felt a ''change of scenery'' was necessary. Two other first-year players in Eric Cobb and Jamill Gregory were dismissed last month after their arrests for property crimes involving firing a BB gun in a neighborhood near campus.
Doby was issued a summons, along with Cobb and Gregory, when police discovered marijuana in a car they were all in.
Doby is a 6-foot-6 forward from Cahokia, Illinois. He averaged 1.8 points and 1.3 rebounds in 16 games.
Martin also announced Wednesday the signing of five players, including Delaware transfer guard Kory Holder, who averaged 17.7 points this past season.
