Maurice Watson Jr., the former Boston University point guard, announced on Sunday he will transfer to Creighton.

The sophomore announced earlier this month that he had received his release from BU and was looking to transfer. Watson broke the news of his decision in a post on his Twitter and Instagram accounts:

Watson, who led BU in scoring (13.3 points per game), assists (7.1 per game) and steals (2.1 per game) in 2013-14, will sit out 2014-15 after transferring and have two seasons of eligibility remaining.

The 5-foot-10, 165-pound Philadelphia native also tweeted a picture of himself standing in the Bluejays' locker room:
