Sophomore guard Martez Walker has withdrawn from the University, the school confirmed Thursday. 

According to an arrest affidavit, Walker was charged with assault on Sept. 12 after he was accused of hitting his girlfriend, who was sent to the hospital with “possible broken ribs.” He was suspended from all team activities following the charges. 

Walker then reappeared less than a week later when he was arrested for trespassing by returning to San Jacinto Residence Hall — where the alleged assault occurred — while banned.

Walker averaged 4.7 points and 2.3 rebounds per game in his lone season.
