George Marshall exploring transfer options

Mary Langenfeld-USA TODAY Sports

Having appeared in just two games this season, the redshirt sophomore is seeking a transfer.

Wisconsin redshirt sophomore George Marshall will explore transfer options, the team announced Saturday. The 5'11 guard appeared in the Badgers' first two games of the season but missed the next four after suffering a concussion in practice Nov. 15.

Highly touted true freshman Bronson Koenig also took advantage of Marshall's absence, playing at least 20 minutes in each of the three games following Marshall's concussion. Against Bowling Green Nov. 21, Koenig scored 10 points and added three rebounds and two assists.

"George came and talked to me and he informed me that he wanted to pursue his options of playing somewhere else," Ryan said in a release. "I told him we would help in any way we could to facilitate his transition to a new school. He's a great kid, from a terrific family and we wish him luck as he continues his academic and athlete career."

Marshall opened the season as the backup point guard behind Traevon Jackson. In total, Marshall has appeared in 37 games as a Badger, including six starts and averaging 4.0 points and 1.0 assist per game.

"I love my teammates and the team and I'm thankful to the university and Coach Ryan for the chance to play at Wisconsin," Marshall said in a release. "I'm excited to look for a new opportunity."
