Guard Jordan Ash will transfer from Northwestern for his final year of eligibility, he announced on Twitter Monday afternoon.

Ash will graduate at the end of the school year and be eligible immediately as a graduate transfer.

Here’s a statement from head coach Chris Collins: “Jordan was an exemplary model of this program during his time at Northwestern. He is a high-character person who has a drive for making himself and those around him better on and off the court. Our staff wishes him the best in the next chapter of his career.”

Ash, a native of Bolingbrook, Illinois, scored 109 total points in 90 games in Evanston. He had each of his previous two seasons cut short due to leg injuries.

This comes as the second transfer out of Northwestern this offseason and the fifth of the Chris Collins era. Notably, of the 11 scholarship players Collins brought in from 2014-2016 in his first three classes, five have left.

With seven returning players on scholarship and three set to join the team in the summer, Collins has three open scholarships to work with on the transfer or re-classification market.
