Central Michigan freshman forward Nick Carlos is transferring to another school after one season in Mt. Pleasant. The 6-foot-7 forward confirmed to Hustle Belt that he has decided to move on to another school, but declined further comment on the subject.
Carlos' decision to transfer was first reported by Jeff Goodman of ESPN in his big 2014 transfer list.
Carlos saw limited action in 24 games this past season, averaging 4.5 minutes and 1.4 points per game for the Chippewas. CMU struggled this season, going 10-21 (3-15 MAC) and finishing 11th out of 12 teams in MAC play. The Chips were bounced from the first round of the 2014 MAC Tournament with a 72-60 loss to rival EMU in the first round in head coach Keno Davis' second season.
The Missouri native originally committed to CMU over an offer from Nebraska Omaha. He was a 2-star recruit.
Having played this past season he will be required to sit out next season as a redshirt before being able to play the following season at wherever he winds up. He will still have three years of eligibility left.
The loss of Carlos isn't a huge blow to CMU but hurts the team's depth somewhat. CMU is graduating just two members of its 2013-2014 roster, forward Zach Saylor and guard DeAndray Buckley, and return all five of their starters and their top eight contributors by minutes played. Carlos' transfer frees up another scholarship for the 2014 recruiting class.
