One year after suffering a gruesome broken leg in the Elite Eight against Duke, Louisville guard Kevin Ware has decided to transfer.

ESPN.com first reported the news.

It's not an entirely unexpected move, as Ware will likely look to transfer closer to home. The Georgia native is redshirting this season after injuring his right leg again back in December. Ware only played nine games this season before ending his campaign.

Ware was one of the most well-known players in college basketball throughout the summer after his injury against Duke last season. When he returned to play against Pikeville College in a preseason exhibition game, it looked to be the start of a tremendous comeback story. However, Ware will now depart the Cardinals.

Louisville loses Russ Smith and Luke Hancock on the perimeter next season, but Chris Jones and Terry Rozier are talented enough to hold down the fort in the backcourt. Moreover, Rick Pitino brings in four-star point guard Quentin Snider and talented wing Shaqquan Aaron.

Louisville's season ended on Friday against Kentucky in the Sweet 16.
