AMES, Iowa- Iowa State head men’s basketball coach Fred Hoiberg confirmed Friday that sophomore Jordan Railey and freshman Tavon Sledge will transfer.  Both have asked for and been granted their full release to transfer to other schools.

“We certainly appreciate the work and effort Jordan and Tavon have given our program,” Hoiberg said. “It basically boiled down to playing time for both of them. I had great conversations with Jordan and Tavon after the season ended and we mutually agreed that their chances for increased playing time would be at another school. Jordan and Tavon are great kids and we will do everything we can to assist them finding the right fit.”

Railey, a 6-10 center from Beaverton, Ore., appeared in 13 games in 2011-12, averaging 0.5 points and 0.7 rebounds. A native of Spring Valley, N.Y., Sledge played in eight games, averaging 1.0 points.
