    Sterling Gibbs, a reserve point guard for the Longhorns as a freshman last season, will transfer to another school, a team spokesman said Tuesday.

    Gibbs averaged just 7.5 minutes a game — last among nine players on the team — and 2.6 points last season.

    He has not selected a new school, the spokesman said. Gibbs recently indicated through his Twitter account that he missed New Jersey; he is from Scotch Plains.

    More likely, though, Gibbs will transfer because of a lack of playing time. He likely would have been third string next season behind sophomore Myck Kabongo and incoming freshman Javan Felix.

    It has to be playing time. No one misses Jersey, no one.

    I was looking forward to seeing him develop over the next 3 years. It wouldn't surprise me if he ends up being pretty decent as a junior and senior.

    This was something players looked forward to themselves, just a few short years ago. Now they just wanna go somewhere they can play 35 minutes a night from day 1 Nd get prepped for the NBA. Thanks a lot Bin Laden.

    Agreed. He was the proverbial 4 year player that everyone wants Barnes to get more of. The transition from the East Coast to Texas can be a stark one so while I'm sure being buried on the depth chart behind Myck and possibly Felix had something to do with his decision, I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss his stated reasons at face value. Now if he transfers to Oregon then it was purely a playing time issue. Amazing how folks bitch about Barnes' one and dones but then turn around and bitch when a green freshman shows very little his first year.....

    I called this in the myck and jcovan thread.. I thought he shouldve played more this season but rick obviously didnt. I had anfeeling he was gone by just looking at him sitting on the bench. He feels as though hes better than a bench warmer and i tend to agree.

    Sucks hea gone. We needed him

    Lost somewhat in the shuffle of junior guard J'Covan Brown declaring for the 2012 NBA Draft and freshman point guard Myck Kabongo opting to return for his sophomore season were rumors of freshman guard Sterling Gibbs' imminent departure.

    On Tuesday morning, a Texas spokesman confirmed that there was truth to those rumors and that Gibbs will indeed be leaving the program, for a destination currently unknown.

    As the Statesman pointed out, Gibbs had tweeted recently that he was homesick for his home state of New Jersey, so that could have played a role in his decision and could impact where he eventually lands.

    However, the Statesman also hit on what is likely the overriding reason for his departure -- a lack of playing time.

    During four games his freshman season, Gibbs never saw the floor and averaged only 7.5 minutes per game on a team that lacked depth, though it was deeper at guard than in the frontcourt. Playing time was especially scarce once conference play began, as Gibbs played 10 or more minutes only four times and broke double digits in scoring but one time as a Longhorn -- a 14-point effort against Nicholls State.

    Kabongo opting to return to school was probably the final straw for Gibbs with another point guard inked in the 2012 class -- Louisiana's Javan Felix, who was expected to beat out Gibbs for the right to back up Kabongo.

    With Gibbs leaving, the take of Garland Naaman Forest guard DeMarcus Holland just two days ago makes more sense and the Longhorns now have room for both star wing Devonta Pollard and possible Tulsa transfer Jordan Clarkson.

    Maybe Rick Barnes does know what he's doing here.

    But best of luck to Gibbs with his future career. He was a Longhorn for less than a year after committing last May, but a Longhorn nontheless.

    I wish him the best of luck wherever he goes. But scholarships are getting tight, and there was bound to be some attrition.

    "Amazing how folks bitch about Barnes' one and dones but then turn around and bitch when a green freshman shows very little his first year....." I don't get this statement. We weren't deep this year, and he didn't show a whole lot that led me to believe he would be much more than the second guard off the bench. And with Felix coming and Kabongo staying, it looks like the felt the same way. Of the other freshman, Holmes, McClellan, and Lewis have me excited about watching their development over the next three seasons, and Bond could turn into a guy that gives you some quality minutes.

    I saw him as our next Jai Lucas, so not much of a loss. Backup PG was probably his ceiling here.

    Still, good luck to him wherever he decides to go. Cant blame him.

    It's easy to figure that anyone who lacks NBA talent is going to stay for a full career. But as we see here, that isn't always the case. Of course, if a guy isn't willing to stay and try to work himself up in the pecking order, it's questionable that you want him around for 4 years anyway. Not to say this is anything other than homesickness, though, because I don't know one way or the other.
