Let's be frank: there's never an ideal moment to craft college essays. At best, there are times that are somewhat less unfavorable. Why is...

An offseason of changes continues for the Colorado State men’s basketball team.

Friday afternoon, a school spokesperson confirmed to the Collegian that sophomore guard Carlton Hurst has asked for and been granted a release from his scholarship.

Ad

Hurst, a native of Aurora, averaged 1.8 points and 1.5 rebounds for the Rams this past season just over nine minutes per game. That was a substantial decrease from his freshman season where he averaged 16.4 minutes per game and was one of CSU’s first two players off the bench.

However, he found himself stuck in the middle of a logjam at guard position, where CSU returns Gian Clavell, John Gillon, Antwan Scott and Jeremiah Paige, while adding prep standouts Prentiss Nixon, Anthony Bonner and C.J. Keyser in the 2015 recruiting class.

Hurst’s departure leaves Colorado State one scholarship over the NCAA limit of 13.

After a standout career at Aurora Central High School, Hurst chose CSU over offers from New Mexico, St. Marys, Wyoming and Pepperdine.

Projected 2015-16 CSU men’s basketball roster:

Guard Antwan Scott 6’2 Redshirt Senior
Guard C.J. Keyser 6’4 Freshman
Guard Prentiss Nixon 6’2 Freshman
Guard Anthony Bonner 6’2 Freshman
Guard John Gillon 6’0 Redshirt Junior
Guard Gian Clavell 6’3 Redshirt Senior
Guard Jeremiah Paige 6’3 Redshirt Freshman
Forward Fred Richardson III 6’4 Senior
Forward Joe De Ciman 6’6 Senior
Forward Tiel Daniels 6’7 Redshirt Senior
Forward Kimani Jackson 6’8 Redshirt Sophomore
Forward Emmanuel Omogbo 6’8 Junior
Forward Nico Carvacho 6’10 Freshman
Forward Toby Van Ry 6’10 Redshirt Freshman
