The Citadel's all-Southern Conference second baseman, Tyler Corbitt, has entered the NCAA's transfer portal.
Corbitt's father, Corky, confirmed April 7 that Corbitt will seek a transfer.
Corbitt, a third-year sophomore from West Columbia's Airport High School, is batting a team-best .376 with five home runs and 16 RBI for the 8-16 Bulldogs, who have lost nine games in a row.
"Ty is a great kid who I have really enjoyed coaching," said Citadel coach Tony Skole. "He has excelled in all areas during his career at The Citadel. Most importantly, I am extremely grateful for my relationship with Ty. I am excited for his future and will always be there for him."
Corbitt hit .350 in a pandemic-shortened 16-game season in 2020, and hit .333 and started all 54 games as a freshman.
He is set to graduate in May with a 4.0 grade-point average, according to his father, and will have two seasons of eligibility left. Corbitt entered the portal now in order to find a place to attend graduate school and play his final two seasons on scholarship. He wanted to finish out the season, but was released by The Citadel, his father said.
