ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Michigan swingman Ibi Watson says he’s decided to “explore other options” in a message on his Twitter account.

Watson thanked the coaching staff and his teammates and said he’s enjoyed the relationships and the memories he’s made. The 6-foot-5 Watson played in 26 games this season as a sophomore, averaging 2.2 points and 5.2 minutes.

Watson’s announcement Thursday came after forward Brent Hibbitts said on his Twitter account Tuesday that he plans to transfer — with two years of eligibility remaining — after finishing his degree early and graduating this summer.

Hibbitts appeared in five games this season.
