Speculation of a Rene Castro transfer wasn't something new when he was benched for a couple of games, but that is what took it to another level.
According to Ari Kasle here on the Hoopcast, Castro was kicked out of a shoot around before the Xavier game and then missed the match-up at home against Creighton as well.
Today, according to an official release from the school, Rene Castro is transferring from the Butler University basketball program.
"Rene informed me that he is planning on transferring to another school," said Butler coach Brandon Miller in the release from the university. "We wish him nothing but the best as he moves forward."
Castro is leaving after averaging 3.3 points in 12 games this season.
