VCU’s Sean Mobley looks to push around Dayton’s Ryan Mikesell during a game on Wednesday Jan. 16, 2019.

VCU will be losing one member of its versatile lineup of forwards.

Coach Mike Rhoades confirmed Monday evening that Sean Mobley is transferring from VCU. The move was first reported by Evan Daniels of 247Sports.

Mobley also tweeted a statement. 

"This was the hardest decision of my life and I am very blessed to have played for such a great university and the unbelievable fans at the Siegel Center," Mobley wrote. 

Mobley, a rising junior, averaged 4.3 points and 2.8 rebounds over his two seasons with the Rams. He started 35 of the 63 games in which he played.

As a sophomore this past season, Mobley averaged 4.2 points and 2.5 rebounds. He started each of the VCU’s final 20 games (23 total) and played 19.9 minutes a game.

Earlier in the season, Mobley missed VCU’s games against Bowling Green, Old Dominion and Iona while dealing with a bone bruise in his left knee.

Rhoades has lauded Mobley as a connector on offense for the Rams. Mobley stood out with his passing ability and his shooting range.

The Cocoa Beach, Fla., native was rated as a four-star recruit by ESPN.com coming out of Montverde Academy in Montverde, Fla.

VCU will now have one scholarship available this offseason. The incoming class for next season currently includes guards Jarren McAllister and Tre Clark. Also St. Christopher's guard Arnold Henderson VI, as a walk-on.
