ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -Sophomore forward Kendric Price is leaving Michigan's basketball program, but plans to remain enrolled in school on scholarship for 2007-08.
``After meeting with Kendric over the past few days, we have mutually decided that he will leave the Michigan basketball program,'' first-year coach John Beilein said in a statement Thursday night. ``Kendric is a talented young man and we wish him nothing but success in the future.''
The 6-foot-7 Price played in eight games last season for the Wolverines, averaging 1.1 points and 0.9 rebounds as a redshirt freshman. The Boston native was recruited to Michigan by coach Tommy Amaker, who was fired after last season and replaced by Beilein.
``After much thought throughout the fall and over the last few weeks, I feel that I need to step away,'' Price said in a statement released by the school. ``I am thankful for the opportunity that was given to me here at Michigan, but I am going to take some time to concentrate on my academic career and decide if I want to further pursue my playing career.''
