Mike Rosario plans to transfer from Rutgers

Rutgers guard Mike Rosario has been granted a conditional

release so he can transfer, meaning the Scarlet Knights can approve

what school he goes to.

Rutgers’ leading scorer started 30 of its 32 games last season,

averaging 16.7 points and 3.9 rebounds. But there were rumors

during most of the season that Rosario was unhappy at Rutgers.

Hiss departure is the latest part of a turbulent offseason for

Rutgers.

It comes as the school works to reach a buyout agreement with

basketball coach Fred Hill amid reports he won’t be retained due to

multiple violations of the conduct clause in his contract.
