Forward Tevin Glass, who played one season at Wichita State, will transfer to East Tennessee State and play for former Shockers assistant Steve Forbes.

Glass, in a text message, said that he plans to sign with East Tennessee State. He will sit out the 2015-16 season and play his final season of eligibility in 2016-17.

Glass (6-foot-7) averaged 2.1 points and 1.1 rebounds in 19 games for the Shockers. He had his best stretch in late January and early February, when he averaged 4.6 points over a five-game span. By March, however, his playing time diminished and he did not appear in the NCAA Tournament.

Glass, from Milton (Ga.) High, played for Forbes as a freshman at Northwest Florida State College and averaged 6.4 points and 4.9 rebounds. As a sophomore, he averaged 12.0 points and 5.8 rebounds and earned All-Panhandle Conference honors. Forbes spent two seasons as an assistant at WSU before taking the job at East Tennessee State in March.

Glass is the final departure from last season’s team to find a new school. Guard Ria’n Holland will be a sophomore at Indian Hills (Iowa) Community College and guard Corey Henderson Jr., also a sophomore, is transferring to Blinn (Texas) College. Guard Jared Walker, a walk-on, will remain at WSU and focus on school.
