Four Tulane basketball players leaving school

New Orleans, La. - Tulane announced Tuesday that four basketball players are leaving the university.

Sophomore guard Ricky Tarrant and sophomore reserve Lotanna Nwogbo were granted releases to speak with other institutions regarding a transfer.

Junior forward Josh Davis and senior guard Ben Cherry, who will graduate from Tulane in May, were granted permission to speak with other institutions about graduate participation.

Davis is also considering his professional basketball opportunities, but his options also include a return to the Green Wave for a senior season.

"We wish these young men all the best in what lies ahead in their basketball careers," head coach Ed Conroy said. "Despite their possible departures, we look forward to building upon the success of this program."

Athletic Director Rick Dickson added "We are disappointed to have these young men leave our basketball program but unfortunately this is becoming more prevalent in men's basketball."

    1st Round TE Dallas Goedert, South Dakota St. I went back and forth with two other linebackers and a cornerback in this slot. But in the end, I circled back around to my original selection of Goedert. Tight end is one of the few positions on the Saints roster where a rookie can step and be a major contributor.
