TribLIVE Sports Videos
Former Beaver Falls boys basketball standout Sheldon Jeter announced Friday he will transfer from Vanderbilt.
“Due to some personal issues, I am leaving Vanderbilt University to be closer to my family,” Jeter said via Twitter.
Jeter played in 33 games in 2012-13 as a true freshman. He made seven starts and averaged 5.5 points and 3.4 rebounds per contest.
“Sheldon has indicated that he'd like to play closer to home, and we wish him the best,” coach Kevin Stallings said.
Jeter, who did not return phone messages, tweeted that he was unsure what school he will attend.
“Just to clear this up, I do not know what school I will go to,” he wrote. “That is another conversation to take place at another time with my family.”
