South Carolina Forward Sedee Keita Announces He Will Transfer

Freshman forward Sedee Keita took to Twitter to announce he intends to transfer out of South Carolina.

The South Carolina basketball program is losing another player, just months removed from its Final Four run. This afternoon, freshman forward Sedee Keita announced on Twitter that he'll be transferring.

Check it out:

Keita, a four-star prospect out of high school, averaged 1.1 points and 2.0 rebounds per game this past season. He saw about 10 minutes per game in a reserve role with the Gamecocks.

Keita spent most of the season trying to work himself into the rotation after being sidelined this past summer with a wrist injury. Toward the end of the season he showed flashes of potential, which included a nine-point performance versus Duke to send the Gamecocks to the Sweet 16.

Keita is the sixth player the Gamecocks have lost this off-season. Senior guards Sindarius Thornwell, Duane Notice and Justin McKie completed their eligibility, sophomore point guard P.J. Dozier left for the NBA and sophomore guard TeMarcus Blanton gave up basketball due to a lingering hip injury. Needless to say, the outlook isn't great for South Carolina basketball moving forward.
