Baltimore Sun - - SPORTS -

Navy power for­ward Jace Ho­gan has re­signed from the academy and trans­ferred. Ho­gan would have been the Mid­ship­men’s sec­ond-lead­ing re­turn­ing scorer be­hind class­mate Shawn An­der­son af­ter av­er­ag­ing 9.7 points per game in 2015-16. He was the team’s sec­ond-lead­ing re­bounder last sea­son with 4.8 per game. “Jace Ho­gan, af­ter a long spring and sum­mer, did not want to serve,” Navy coach Ed DeChellis said. “We had a lot of back-and-forth with Jace Ho­gan. He wanted to do it, didn’t want to do it. In the end, he de­cided he did not want to serve in the Navy.” DeChellis said Ho­gan has en­rolled at Jack­sonville, where he was re­cruited to play bas­ket­ball and will have two years of el­i­gi­bil­ity re­main­ing af­ter sit­ting out this sea­son un­der NCAA trans­fer rules. It marks the first time dur­ing the five-year ten­ure of DeChellis that Navy’s had a key re­turn­ing player de­cide not to sign the “two-for-seven” pa­pers. All mid­ship­men at the Naval Academy must sign pa­per­work
