CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) - University of Illinois basketball coach John Groce (GROHS) has confirmed that forward Darius Paul has transferred to a Texas junior college.
Groce on Friday said Paul moved to Lamar State College in Port Arthur, Texas after his suspension from the Illini basketball team.
Groce called the school a good fit for the 6-8 forward.
Paul was suspended from the team and lost his scholarship on May 13 following his arrest on campus, and what Groce described at the time as "multiple transgressions."
Paul has since pleaded guilty to underage drinking.
Paul transferred to Illinois from Western Michigan and sat out the 2013-14 season under NCAA transfer rules. He was expected to be a regular next season.
He is the younger brother of former Illini star Brandon Paul.
