LUBBOCK, Texas – Texas Tech head coach Billy Gillispie announced today that 6-8 sophomore Jaron Nash has elected to transfer due to personal reasons.

“We hate to lose Jaron. He has been a valued team member and a part of our Texas Tech family,” said Gillispie. “He has some extenuating family circumstances and he needs to get closer to home. We appreciate his efforts here and thoroughly support his decision.”

Nash, who played in 27 of 31 games for the Red Raiders, averaged 2.5 points and 1.5 rebounds in 8.5 minutes per game.

“My family and I came to a difficult decision that will lead to me transferring from Texas Tech University” said Jaron Nash. “It was tough because the Texas Tech family has been great to me. But I want and need to get closer to home to be around my dad as he fights through his medical condition.”

Nash, a native of Waterloo, Iowa, transferred to Texas Tech after spending one season at Tyler Junior College.
