Jasper tells newspaper he's considering a transfer

UK guard Derrick Jasper told the San Luis Obispo Tribune he is considering a transfer from UK. Jasper said he wants to be closer to home.

“I want to get closer to my family,” Jasper told The Tribune on Thursday, during a phone interview from Lexington. “I’m kind of homesick, playing here in Kentucky, and I have been thinking about transferring to a West Coast school so that my family can attend more of my games.”

The story reported Jasper is considering three schools. Jasper declined to name the schools.

Jasper also said he missed playing point guard. Jasper played the point under then-coach Tubby Smith, but because of a knee injury, watched Ramel Bradley play point guard under new coach Billy Gillispie.
