VCU says rising redshirt sophomore guard Samir Doughty has decided to transfer.

New coach Mike Rhoades says the decision came by mutual agreement and he wished Doughty well.

The 6-foot-4 guard from Philadelphia was the Rams' fourth-leading scorer last season. He averaged 9.8 points in just over 23 minutes per game, and was expected to have a larger role next season. He joins Ahmed Hamdy as players who have decided to leave VCU since Rhoades replaced Will Wade as coach.
