Cincinnati freshman forward Jermaine Lawrence has requested his release and is expected to transfer, sources told CBSSports.com.

Lawrence was a five-star recruiting coming out of high school, but he never found his role during his first season at Cincinnati. He played 15.0 minutes a game, but averaged just 2.8 points and 2.9 rebounds.

His numbers also dwindled as the season went on, missing eight games with a toe injury and then scoring nine points total in the final 11 games of the season. 

The 6-foot-9 New York native had St. John's and UNLV on his list before choosing Cincinnati in February 2013.
