Reserve shooting guard Raul Delgado will transfer from BYU, according to several confirmed reports.

BYU reserve shooting guard Raul Delgado will transfer following this year, according to reports. CBSsports.com first reported the departure.

Delgado, a 6-foot-2 native of Chihuahua, Mexico, saw decreased playing time after transferring to BYU following a standout career at Western Nebraska Community College. The junior who prepped at Springville High (Utah) averaged 1.8 points, 0.9 rebounds, 0.5 assists and 0.3 steals while shooting 34 percent from the field during his time in a Cougar uniform.

Delgado stood out at the lower levels, averaging 16.8 points for a Red Devils squad that regularly contended in Utah's Class 4A state tournament. He also averaged 18.3 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.8 steals while shooting 48 percent from the field as a sophomore at Western Nebraska.

The juniors minutes steadily declined throughout the season following career-best efforts against Northern Arizona and Division II Eastern New Mexico. His playing time looked to take another hit for next year when the Cougars announced the signing of Salt Lake Community College transfer Skyler Halford. The Orem native averaged 17.4 points, 4.5 rebounds, four assists and 1.6 steals en route to JC All-American status and Scenic West Player of the Year honors.

No announcement has been made of Delgado's potential transfer destination, but BYU basketball personnel confirmed the decision and is working with the player in the matter. Delgado had offers from TCU, Utah State, Wyoming and Detroit before committing to BYU in 2012.

With Delgado's departure, BYU currently has two scholarships open.
