Pittsburgh's men's basketball program is in a state of flux. The Panthers are currently looking for a new head coach.

The team is reportedly set to lose one of its best young players, too.

ESPN college basketball insider Jeff Goodman is reporting that freshman guard Parker Stewart is leaving.

He's reportedly asked for his release.

"Pittsburgh freshman Parker Stewart has asked for his full unconditional release, sources told ESPN. Terrific shooter. Averaged 9.1 points per game. Finished in top two in ACC play in 3's made, first in 3-point field goal percentage and top 3 in 3's made per game," says Goodman.

Here's the full tweet:

The 6-foot-5 guard averaged 9 points and 3 rebounds a game for the Panthers this past season. Pitt went winless in ACC play.

The guard was a three-star recruit coming out of high school. He's a Tennessee native.

It's unclear at this point which schools might be in contention to land him.
