"We appreciate the effort and hard work that Devontae has put forth over the past two years, and we wish him well in the future," said Butler head coach Brandon Miller in a statement released by the school.
Morgan saw action in 14 games this season for the Bulldogs. He averaged 1.8 points, 0.9 rebounds, 0.4 assists, and 0.3 steals in 6.2 minutes per game.
After seeing action in the first six games for Butler this season, Morgan was suspended for the 3rd-place game of the Old Spice Classic versus LSU. After that incident, Morgan saw his time cut dramatically.
Butler has now had three defections since the coaching change last summer. With the loss of Smeathers, Castro, and Morgan, Butler will look to upgrade its roster over the off-season through transfers, class of 2014 signees, and looking forward to the class of 2015.
