Jaylen Bond to transfer to Temple

Michael C. Johnson-US PRESSWIRE

The sophomore forward announced that he was transferring in March. Now we know where he is headed.

Texas forward Jaylen Bond will transfer to Temple. On Friday, the 6-7 sophomore announced his decision via Twitter.

Back in March, Bond announced that he intended to transfer, electing to make his intentions known before Texas' final game against Houston.

The decision to play for Temple is not surprising. Bond is from Philadelphia, and had initially committed to play for Jamie Dixon at Pittsburgh. Pitt released Bond from his commitment when Dixon signed more recruits than there were scholarships for, and Bond ended up committing to Texas.

As a freshman, Bond appeared in all 34 games for Texas, averaging 15 minutes per contest.

Bond's sophomore season got off to a rough start. He sat out the first two games with an injury. In Texas' third game, a loss to Chaminade in Maui, Bond played five minutes before suffering another injury.

Bond ended up only appearing in 20 games as a sophomore for Texas, and only played 11 minutes per game.

With so many other young players in the Texas front court, extended playing time was going to be hard to come by for Bond at Texas.

Bond will sit out the 2013-2014 season, and then will have two remaining years of eligibility at Temple.
