Providence forward Tyler Harris will graduate in May, per an official release from the university, and plans to transfer to another school for his final season of eligibility.

"I would like to wish Tyler all the best in his future endeavors," said Head Coach Ed Cooley. "Tyler helped us move our program forward over the last two years as we won the BIG EAST title and made consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances during his two seasons of competition."

Harris transferred to Providence in 2012 after he spent his freshman season at North Carolina State. He started all 35 games for the Friars in 2014, averaging 11.6 points and 5.1 rebounds a game while helping PC to a Big East Tournament title and their first NCAA Tournament appearance in ten years.  Rumor spread earlier in the year of Harris' intention to enter the NBA Draft after his role on the team diminished this season.  He averaged under 10 points a game and 4.4 rebounds in all 34 games, making 12 starts.  He scored two points and grabbed four rebounds in Friday's second round loss to Dayton in the NCAA Tournament.
