Aaron Durley granted release

The Marquette Athletic Department sent an email Friday that Aaron Durley, a 6-foot-10 incoming recruit, would not be joining the program next season.

“It has been a privilege and pleasure building a relationship with Aaron and his family,” head coach Buzz Williams said.  “We wish Aaron the absolute best in his future academic and athletic career. I believe he will be successful in both.”

Durley was a 270-pound big man from Ft. Bend Bush High School and signed his letter of intent in November 2011. He selected Marquette over South Florida, South Alabama and Chattanooga.

Durley received little playing time behind All-American Cameron Ridley, racking up more DNP’s than minutes played and averaging seven points and five rebounds.

In an an interview with the Journal-Sentinel, Durley’s coach Ronnie Courtney said he “expected more” and the big man was not as dominant as he hoped he would be.

“I would say for his physique, I think he’s struggling a little bit,” said Courtney. “He needs to work on everything. At 6-10 and 280 pounds, he should have been a force on the inside that somebody has to reckon with and I didn’t get that from him.”

We will continue updating this story throughout the day.
