Guard Kevin Ware announced earlier this year that he was transferring to Georgia State from Louisville. He is also petitioning the NCAA for immediate eligibility.
A message to Hinton left on Facebook hasn’t been returned.
“We appreciate everything Jaylen did and wish him nothing but the best,” coach Ron Hunter said.
The Panthers still have several players capable of playing point guard, even if the NCAA doesn’t grant Ware’s petition. Harrow will return for his senior season, R.J. Hunter can play point and Isaiah Dennis will return from redshirting his freshman year. Jeff Thomas, an incoming freshman, can also play point.
