Redshirt freshman Aaron Liberman to transfer from Northwestern

Redshirt freshman center Aaron Liberman will transfer from Northwestern, according to a tweet from Northwestern's men's basketball team.

Liberman, a walk-on from Los Angeles, played sparingly for the Wildcats over his career. In 2013-2014, he appeared in just 10 games for a total of nine minutes.

There had been grumblings about Liberman potentially leaving the program, especially after forward Sanjay Lumpkin posted a picture of current men's basketball players after a workout Monday. Liberman was not included in the photo.

Although Liberman did not make an impact on the court, he was one of Northwestern's most popular players. He wore a yarmulke when he played and became the first player to wear one in a Big Ten game.

NU now only has six players returning next year, though it will bring in five recruits. Liberman's transfer does not affect scholarship numbers, as he was a walk-on.
