HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) — Marshall freshman guard Kelvin Amayo plans to transfer to another school.

Marshall announced Amayo's decision Monday night in a news release.

Amayo says he wants to be closer to home. The Newark, N.J., resident and Marshall didn't identify the school.

He played in three games after becoming eligible in December, averaging 2.7 points per game.

Marshall head coach Tom Herrion says he was surprised by Amayo's decision to transfer. But he wishes Amayo the best in the future.
