Purdue starting point guard Ronnie Johnson is going to transfer, and coach Matt Painter said in a statement yesterday that the sophomore has been granted his release.

The 6-foot Indianapolis native appeared in 66 games, starting 59. He averaged 10.6 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists in his two-year career. This season, Johnson averaged 10.8 points, shot 41.8 percent from the field and 30.4 percent on three-pointers. Johnson’s older brother, Terone, was a senior this season.

It’s unclear where Ronnie Johnson might end up next season.

The Boilermakers (15-17) lost in the first round of the Big Ten tournament to Ohio State on Thursday. They are not eligible for the NIT and are not planning to compete in one of the lesser postseason tournaments.
