Virginia tight end Jake McGee plans to graduate in May, and then transfer for his final season of eligibility.
Cavaliers coach Mike London made the announcement Friday.
McGee was the leading returning receiver for the Cavaliers with 43 catches last season and was expected to play an even bigger role this season.
London even altered McGee's position from purely tight end to tight end and wide receiver hoping to make better use of his abilities. The 6-foot-6 McGee has shown a knack for spectacular catches in games and in practice at Virginia, and figured prominently, especially in red-zone passing situations.
London says he wishes McGee well at his next destination.
He will have one year of eligibility remaining, but will be eligible to play right away.
