STARKVILLE, Miss. – Due to health-related issues with his mother, guard Jacoby Davis has decided to transfer to a school closer to his home.

His mother, Michelle, has been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and Davis has requested to be closer to her.

“I fully support Jacoby's decision to transfer under these circumstances,” MSU coach Rick Ray said. “Jacoby has been a model student-athlete here at Mississippi State but simply wants and needs to get back closer to home to support his mother.”

The 6-foot-1 Charlotte, N.C., native just completed his redshirt freshman campaign after sitting out his first year on campus following a torn ACL he suffered in individual workouts.

He appeared in 28 games as a reserve, averaging 2.2 points and 1.2 rebounds while dishing out 19 assists. His career-high of 9 points came at Missouri on March 1.
