Just weeks after transferring to the Wolf Pack, forward Trey Wade decommitted from the Wolf Pack, Dushawn London of 247sports.com first tweeted Monday.
The former Wichita State transfer cited the reason to transfer was to seek an opportunity to play closer to home because of his grandfather’s illness.
“Thank you to the Nevada staff and the Wolf Pack community for greeting me with open arms,” Wade, a native of Marietta, Ga., said via his twitter account. “With my grandfather being ill I would hopefully get the opportunity to play at a closer proximity. Family is always first in my book! Thank you again.”
