It appears JJ Caldwell didn’t like his options when it came to transferring so he took the other path.
The former Texas A&M guard announced on Twitter Tuesday that he has decided to forego the rest of his eligibility and turn pro.
The move comes a little over three months after Caldwell was dismissed from the Aggies program. While Texas A&M just cited violations of policy, Brent Zwerneman of the Houston Chronicle later reported that Caldwell was charged with marijuana possession.

He was also suspended five games earlier in the season for violation of team policy.
“I know my parents didn’t raise me like that, and I want to take total responsibility for my actions,” Caldwell said in part.
He started in just five games while playing in 16 during his time in College Station. He everagedjust 2.9 points and 2.6 rebounds over that span.
