Former Western Michigan Guard Leo Svete Transferring to IUPUI

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

The former WMU SG has transferred to play closer to his home in Indiana.

Earlier this month it was announced that WMU freshman guard Leo Svete had decided to transfer from the Broncos, now he has a destination. In a Tweet Tuesday evening Svete confirmed he is transferring to Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI).

Svete, a member of the Broncos' 2013 recruiting class, couldn't be guaranteed consistent playing time next season at WMU, so he was granted a release by Broncos' head coach Steve Hawkins. A 6-foot-5, 195 pound shooting guard, Svete's decision to go to IUPUI moves him back to his home state of Indiana.

Per NCAA transfer rules Svete, who redshirted this season due to a knee injury he suffered in high school, will have to redshirt again, meaning he'll have just three years of eligibility left with the Jaguars, who are coming off a 6-26 season in the Summit League.

Svete's departure isn't a huge blow to the Broncos, even if senior guard David Brown doesn't come back for another season. Due to injury issues Svete hasn't played in an official game of basketball since his junior season of high school. The former Bronco also opens up a roster spot for Hawkins to go out and fill with either another prepr recruit or a JUCO transfer to help bolster the reigning MAC Champions' efforts for a repeat in 2014-205.
