PROVO — BYU coach Dave Rose announced today that sophomore Cory Calvert will transfer from the program.

Calvert, a 6-foot-3 guard from Parker, Colorado, has played in five games this season, totaling five points and five rebounds. As a freshman in 2012-13, Calvert averaged 1.9 points and 0.9 rebounds while helping BYU to a 24-12 record and a trip to the semifinals of the NIT in Madison Square Garden.

“I’m really appreciative of my time here at BYU,” Calvert said. “I’m grateful for the support from my coaches, teammates and our fans. I wish BYU the best of luck the rest of this season.”

Following his freshman season, Calvert served a two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Boston.

“We’re grateful for Cory’s hard work and dedication,” Rose said. “We wish him the very best with the rest of his collegiate career.”
