Texas guard Sterling Gibbs will transfer, saying in a statement Tuesday that his decision was "family-related and involves more than basketball."

The freshman averaged 2.6 points in 30 games this past season for Texas.

"I've had a great year at Texas," Gibbs said. "I've improved as a basketball player and as a person during my time here. If my decision had to do with basketball only, I would not be leaving Texas."

Gibbs will transfer after he completes the spring semester.
