Laval Lucas-Perry has decided to release a statement through GOAZCATS.com to the UA fan base regarding his transfer from the University of Arizona.
The following is Lucas-Perry's statement:
The academics and athletics at the UA are among the best in the country, and I am grateful to have been a part of such a prestigious program.
I would like to thank the staff, faculty, students and fans that have embraced and supported me. I would particularity like to thank Coach Olson, Coach O'Neill, Coach Pastner and Coach Simon who are outstanding coaches and I have much respect for them.
As you know I always give 100% in the classroom and on the court. I have done my best to represent UA as a positive student/athlete at all times.
My transfer from the UA program is not a reflection of any one thing, but is purely personal. I would like to wish the coaches, players and fans much success in the years to come, and UA will always be considered my second HOME!
Bear Down! Go Wildcats!
