Huskies guard Quevyn Winters, who transferred to Washington last season from Indian Hills Community College, will not return to UW for his senior season.
The school announced in a release that Winters is leaving the team for personal reasons, and he will not seek to transfer elsewhere.
Winters played sparingly last season as a junior, appearing in 27 games and averaging 11.0 minutes. He came to UW with a reputation as a shooter, but made just 24.6 percent of his 3-point attempts in 2014-15.
A native of Milwaukee, Winters played his freshman season at Duquesne -- where he averaged nearly 10 points per game as a freshman -- before transferring to Indian Hills as a sophomore.

Winters’ departure won’t impact the Huskies much on the court. With a talented class of freshmen guards arriving this summer, it would have been difficult for him to carve out much of a role. But it does continue a trend of defections that began a few months ago. Andrew Andrews and Donaven Dorsey are now the only scholarship players returning from last season’s team; Nigel Williams-Goss, Jernard Jarreau, Darin Johnson and Gilles Dierickx each transferred this offseason.
The Huskies now have 11 scholarships filled -- nine by newcomers and seven by freshmen -- for the 2015-16 season.
