Coach Greg McDermott said Thursday he doesn't anticipate Vette returning to the program.
Brett Vette, Clayton's father, said in a statement his son's decision had more to with his ``overall personal requirements and desires'' than his career at Iowa State.
Vette, the 2007 Iowa Mr. Basketball, played five games this season, averaging 1.4 points and 1.6 rebounds. He originally signed with Indiana State, but switched his commitment to Iowa State after the Sycamores fired coach Royce Walton.
Vette is the second true freshman to leave the program this season. Guard Marcus Brister also cited personal reasons when he left last month.
