Former St. Joseph's Prep senior guard Miles Overton announced on Tuesday that he is transferring from Wake Forest.

The sophomore guard played in 36 games over the past two seasons and averaged 3.4 points. He asked head coach Danny Manning for his release on Tuesday and the coach granted his request.

"After talking with my family, I believe it's best for me to leave Wake Forest and continue my career closer to home. I wish my teammates, coaches and the basketball program the best," Overton said.
