MURRAY, Ky. (AP) — Murray State coach Steve Prohm has announced that sophomore guard Zay Jackson is leaving the Racers program immediately to transfer to another school this spring.
Jackson is recovering from surgery earlier this month to repair torn anterior cruciate and lateral collateral ligaments in his right knee sustained in practice when he landed awkwardly after dunking.
The guard had returned to the team last spring after being suspended last year following his arrest in September 2012 for trying to run down a man with his car in a Walmart parking lot following a confrontation. Jackson spent 49 days in jail for the incident.
Prohm said in a statement that Jackson has had "a tough couple of years" at Murray State with the off-court incident and the injury but wished him well.
