Malachi Flynn just ended an impressive sophomore campaign at Washington State. Now, he will head elsewhere to continue his college career.

Flynn, a Tacoma, Washington native, was the team leader in minutes per game at 33.4. He was the second-leading scorer for the Cougars at 15.4 points per game.

Flynn also led the team in assists (4.3 per game) and steals (1.6). His numbers were up across the board from his freshman season, when he averaged 9.7 points per game.

His two years in Pullman didn't bring many wins however. After a 13-18 first season, the Cougs were 12-19 this year, with a 4-14 mark in a pretty light Pac-12.

Now, Malachi Flynn will transfer.

He announced the decision via Twitter. There is no indication yet of where he may look at as potential destinations.

In high school, Flynn starred at Bellarmine Prep. He was the eighth-ranked Washington recruit in the class of 2016.

247Sports ranked him No. 293 overall. He was the 54th ranked point guard.

He was not a heavily-pursued player. Flynn had committed to Pacific, but flipped to Wazzu when the Cougars made a late move during his recruitment.

It's been a rough few days for the already-lean Cougars program. Earlier in the week, leading scorer Robert Franks declared for the NBA Draft, and while he hasn't ruled out a return to program yet, he told The Spokesman-Reviewthat he is "leaning towards" signing with an agent.
