Missouri Tigers forward Stefan Jankovic announced last Friday that he’s decided to transfer to a new school.
He released the following statement through the university:
I want to thank everyone at Missouri, my teammates, the coaching staff, the administration and the fans. This was a tough decision for me, and Missouri will always hold a special place in my heart, but this was about having the opportunity to find a better fit where I could play a larger role on the court. I am looking forward to my next opportunity and want to wish everyone at Mizzou all the best this year (The Kansas City Star).
Missouri coach Frank Haith, in a statement of his own, praised Jankovic:
First and foremost, Stefan was a great representative of our program during his time at Mizzou and we wish him and his family all the best as his collegiate career moves forward. Stef wants a larger role in his next opportunity and I will do everything I can to help him land in a great situation.
Jankovic, a sophomore, appeared in 25 games as a freshman last season, averaging 7.9 minutes per game. He didn’t play much in Missouri’s opening few games of this season, averaging only 8.7 minutes per game.
