David Wingett has entered the transfer portal and will leave the University of Memphis after missing much of last season with an injury, according to published reports. 

Prior to signing with Memphis, Wingett was a late bloomer who exploded with Bull City Prep and Team Loaded a year ago. He developed as a scorer and 3-point shooter who received offers from universities across the nation.

A leg injury hampered Wingett's play during his freshman season with the Tigers, where he played only 23 minutes. He was 1 of 10 from the field and grabbed one rebound in his first season of college basketball.

The Nebraska native was one of only three Native Americans playing Division I basketball last season. 

Memphis head coach Penny Hardaway officially has four scholarships remaining, with Precious Achiuwa, Lester Quinones, RJ Hampton and Trendon Watford still deciding which college they will attend next season. Quinones is expected to announce his decision Friday.

Hampton reclassified to the Class of 2019 last week, meaning his recruitment, and Hardaway's pursuit of him, accelerated.
