COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- Missouri says forward Kadeem Green plans to transfer closer to home.

The 6-foot-8 Green averaged 10.5 minutes in 11 games for the No. 7 Tigers (13-0), who are off to their best start since the 1981-82 season. The redshirt freshman, who is originally from Toronto, missed last season while he recovered from a torn Achilles tendon sustained during his high school career at United Faith Christian Academy in Charlotte, N.C.

Missouri now has only seven players on scholarship, with only Ricardo Ratliffe and Steve Moore taller than 6-foot-6. Kim English, a 6-6 shooting guard, has transitioned to forward to provide some necessary depth.

The Tigers announced Green's decision on Tuesday. Coach Frank Haith says they wish Green nothing but the best.
