To say this has been a bad week for Darrin Horn and the USC basketball program would be an understatement. Add Murphy Holloway to the list of players that have decided to bolt the program. Holloway announced today that he would be transferring back to Ole Miss.
“I came back because of my daughter and my family situation and I feel like that situation is a lot better than it was, and I want to take the opportunity to go back to Ole Miss,” Holloway said.
Holloway is the fourth player this week to walk away from Horn’s program. Tuesday sophomore guards Ramon Golloway and Stephen Spinella announced they were transferring and Wednesday freshman point guard Bruce Ellington decided to join the football team. As of now, Ellington still plans to return to basketball after football season ends.
“I’m disappointed to see Murphy go,” Horn said. “I’ve seen great growth in him as a person and a basketball player since he arrived at South Carolina. We wish him the best moving forward.
We have submitted an interview request to speak with Horn. Stay tuned for more details on this developing story.
