WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) -- Guard Anthony Johnson will leave Purdue and transfer to another school.

Coach Matt Painter made the announcement in a news release Monday afternoon.

Johnson, a redshirt sophomore and native of Chicago, averaged 5.2 points and 2.5 rebounds in 68 career games with the Boilermakers. This past season, Johnson started seven times in 24 games, averaging 4.9 points and 2.9 rebounds. He is not related to the brother tandem of Ronnie and Terone Johnson, who were the starting guards this season for Purdue.

Anthony Johnson is the third Boilermakers player to leave the program in less than a week. Forwards Sandi Marcius and Jacob Lawson also were granted their releases late last week.
