The brief, underwhelming USF career of sophomore PG Roddy Peters is over.

Peters, a Maryland transfer limited to 10 games this past season due to a foot fracture, has been dismissed by Bulls coach Orlando Antigua for repeated violations of school policy.

"I wish Roddy the best of luck," Antigua said in a USF news release.

After sitting out the 2014-15 season per NCAA transfer rules, Peters -- whose sleekness appeared an ideal fit for Antigua's high-tempo philosophy -- started eight games, averaging 9.8 points, 3.5 assists and 3.3 rebounds. He sustained his foot injury during a 65-46 home loss to N.C. State and didn't play again.

Peters now will be seeking his third program in four seasons. USF, meantime, appears fine at point guard, especially if freshman Jahmal McMurray opts to return to school as expected after exploring his NBA draft status this spring.

The Bulls also welcome 6-foot-2 freshman Andres Feliz, a 19-under Dominican Republic National Team member who averaged 23.7 points this past regular season for Orlando West Oaks Academy. Feliz recently was among 12 players chosen to play for the World Team in the 2016 Nike Hoop Summit.
