Hoyas forward Benimon to transfer

Georgetown sophomore forward Jerrelle Benimon will transfer to another school, making him the second Hoyas player this offseason to depart the program early to play elsewhere in college.

Benimon played in every game this season, averaging 1.8 rebounds and 1.3 points in 10.3 minutes.

Coach John Thompson III announced Benimon’s move Wednesday. The school said Benimon hasn’t announced where he plans to go.

Sophomore guard Vee Sanford announced his plans to transfer last month.

The Hoyas could also lose sophomore Hollis Thompson, who has entered his name in the NBA draft but has not hired an agent.
