Four players to transfer from DePaul
"We appreciate the efforts of these four players," DePaul coach Oliver Purnell said in a statement. "We support their decisions to look for other opportunities."
Morgan, a 6-foot-6 forward, played in 29 games, including three starts, and averaged 5.9 points, 2.3 rebounds and 18.9 minutes as a junior. He made a team-high 32 3-pointers last season.
Robertson Jr., a 6-foot-10 center, played in 32 games, including two starts, and averaged 1.9 points, 2.6 rebounds and 13 minutes as a sophomore.
Price, a 6-foot-7 swingman, played in eight games and averaged 2.4 minutes as a freshman. Clemons, a 6-foot-7 forward, played in 19 games and averaged 1.3 points, 1.1 rebounds and five minutes as a freshman.
The Blue Demons have three players signed and one committed for next season. Morgan Park (Chicago) senior point guard Billy Garrett Jr., who is ranked No. 90 in ESPN's Class of 2013, South Plains College (Texas) sophomore center Forrest Robinson and Citrus Junior College (Calif.) sophomore power forward Greg Sequele are signed. Oak Hill Academy (Va.) senior guard R.J. Curington committed to DePaul in January.
DePaul went 11-21 overall and 2-16 in the Big East last season in Purnell's third season with the program.
