Iowa State redshirt sophomore forward Cameron Lard will transfer from the university and finish his collegiate career elsewhere.
Lard, who was suspended multiple times during his time in Ames, will have two years of eligibility remaining.

Lard played 24 games off the bench for Iowa State in 2018-19, averaging 5.6 points and 2.8 rebounds per game.
Most of the 6-foot-9 forward's success came as a redshirt freshman in 2017-18. Lard played 29 games (16 starts) and averaged 12.6 points and 8.1 rebounds per game that year, highlighted by a 21-point, 16-rebound performance against Texas and a 19-point, 17-rebound game against Oklahoma.
"I appreciate the opportunity to be a part of the Cyclone family and will never forget the memories made with my teammates," Lard said in a press release. "I can't thank coach [Steve] Prohm and Iowa State enough for what they've done for me. Thank you also to Cyclone Nation for all of your support."
Iowa State now has one open scholarship for the 2019 class. The Cyclones could add more as well, given recent transfer history within the program and two players — sophomore guard Lindell Wigginton and freshman guard Talen Horton-Tucker — who have been asked about declaring for the NBA Draft.
"We appreciate the efforts that Cameron gave to our program during his time with us," Prohm said in a release. "Cameron has made great strides and we certainly wish him well in the future. We will continue to help him in any way we can."
