Reporter Mike Sullivan has a press release given to him by St. John's University, outlining Omari Lawrence's future plans ...

From St. John's University Communications office:

St. John’s head men’s basketball coach Steve Lavin announced that freshman swingman Omari Lawrence (Bronx, N.Y./South Kent (Conn.) plans to transfer to another institution this offseason.

“We wish Omari all the best,” said Lavin. “He is a talented player with a bright future, and he leaves St. John’s University in good academic standing.”

Lawrence played in 25-of-33 games as a rookie in 2009-10, averaging 2.5 points per contest and 1.5 rebounds in 9.3 minutes. He connected on 34.7 percent of his field goals (25-of-72), 33.3 percent of his 3-point attempts (4-of-12) and 34.8 percent of his free throws (8-of-23).

Lawrence’s best performance of his freshman season came on Jan. 23 against Villanova, when he scored eight points on 4-of-6 field goals in 14 minutes, and added two rebounds, an assist and a steal.

FROM MIKE SULLIVAN: Omari was a big recruit for then head coach Norm Roberts two summers ago. He was a slick offensively gifted player who could produce a lot of points.

We wish Omari the best of luck. We still believe he is very capable of having an impact somewhere on the division one level.
