Proffitt transferring to Morehead St.

Former South Laurel guard Ty Proffitt is transferring to Morehead State. Proffitt, who last week was released from his scholarship at Notre Dame, will sit out this season and have three years of eligibitly remaining.

The 6-foot-4 Proffitt played only 22 minutes in eight games last season in South Bend. Proffitt decided to transfer after the Irish returned from a 13-day trip to Ireland.

Proffitt met with UK coaches last Thursday to discuss the possibility of transferring there.
