Houston Cougars sophomore guard Caleb Mills has chosen to transfer for personal reasons and will no longer compete with the Cougars.

Houston Head Coach Kelvin Sampson made the announcement prior to Wednesday's game vs. American Athletic Conference rival Wichita State in Houston.

"I am grateful to Coach Sampson, my coaches and teammates for the opportunities in Houston," Mills said. "This decision allows me to play closer to home and is best for me and my family."

"We thank Caleb for his contributions to our program during his time at Houston and wish him and his family the best in the future," Sampson said.
