A spokesperson for DePaul University confirmed on Wednesday that junior forward Tony Freeland will be transferring from the school, according to Scott Powers of ESPN Chicago. Freeland has been sitting out the 2011-2012 season while recovering from a shoulder injury that required surgery prior to the beginning of the season.
Freeland appeared in 31 games for the Blue Demons as a sophomore in 2010-2011, making eight starts for the team. He averaged 24.6 minutes per game and was the third-leading scorer on the team behind Cleveland Melvin and Brandon Young, DePaul's current star players.
He averaged 9.6 points and 5.0 rebounds per game, including four 20-point games. At this point, it's unclear where Freeland plans to transfer to. The 6-foot-7, 227-pound Freeman was recruited to DePaul in 2009 out of Los Angeles, Calif.
