OGDEN — Roster changes are underway for Weber State men’s basketball following its 2017-18 season.

Freshman guard Trevon Ary-Turner announced Monday on Twitter that he is leaving the Wildcats after one season with the program to continue his basketball career elsewhere.

He tweeted: “To the Weber community, I appreciate all the support over my time here. To the coaches, I thank you for helping me grow as a basketball player and as a man. To my teammates, I have love for every one of you guys and you will always be my brothers.”

Ary-Turner, a 6-foot-3 guard from Issaquah, Washington, appeared in 18 of 31 games for the Wildcats this season. He averaged 10.3 minutes per appearance and began the season as a rotation player, but found less playing time in conference games. He made only two appearances of one minute each in the final nine games of the season.

The left-hander shot 47.9 percent from the field and 41.9 percent (13 of 31) from the 3-point line. He totaled a career-high 22 points on 9-of-12 shooting (and 4 of 5 from deep) in a Nov. 14, 2017, win over West Coast Baptist.

Ary-Turner was part of the 2017 signing class and once held an offer from the University of Washington before an injury early in his high school career. He told the Standard-Examiner in January 2017 he was seriously considering an offer from Seattle University before committing to Weber State.

His departure leaves 13 scholarships for a planned 13 players entering the 2018-19 season, based on the expected additions of four freshmen (Spencer Johnson, Tim Fuller, Israel Barnes and Donatas Kupsas) next season.

Weber State finished the 2017-18 season with a 20-11 record and declined invitations to postseason tournaments, citing the overall health of the team.
