WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Wichita State guard Peyton Allen has left the program and withdrawn from school.

Shockers coach Gregg Marshall said in a statement Wednesday that the redshirt sophomore decided to leave for personal reasons. Marshall did not elaborate on the reason, though he did say it was unrelated to basketball or any off-the-court conduct or violation of team rules.

Allen transferred to Wichita State from Texas A&M; last fall, and spent the season on the Shockers’ practice squad while satisfying NCAA transfer rules.

The native of Springfield, Illinois, started eight games and played in 32 as a freshman for the Aggies, averaging 4.5 points in 14.1 minutes. He scored a career-high 16 points in a game against New Orleans, and also reached double-digits against Alabama and Missouri.
