WINSTON-SALEM — Arnaud William Adala Moto is transferring from Wake Forest.
New coach Danny Manning announced the forward’s decision Wednesday.
Adala Moto made 11 starts and played in all 33 games as a sophomore last season, averaging 6.9 points and 5.2 rebounds.
Adala Moto came to Wake Forest in 2012 as part of a seven-man recruiting class that was the core of former coach Jeff Bzdelik’s rebuilding effort and included guard Codi Miller-McIntyre and big man Devin Thomas.
LSU: After becoming the only LSU player other than Shaquille O’Neal to block 100 shots in a season, Jordan Mickey has decided to remain with the Tigers at least one more year.
The 6-foot-8, 220-pound Mickey was a second-team All-SEC selection as a freshman, when he averaged 12.7 points, 7.9 rebounds and a league-leading 3.1 blocks. He finished with 106 blocks and recorded nine double-doubles.
Tennessee: Tennessee has granted guards Larry Austin Jr. and Jordan Cornish releases from their letters of intent, cutting the Volunteers’ incoming freshman class in half.
Their releases come one day after new coach Donnie Tyndall’s hiring. Austin and Cornish both signed with Tennessee in November, when Cuonzo Martin was still coaching the team. Martin announced April 15 he was leaving to take over California’s program.
