NJCAA Game 1

College of Southern Idaho freshman Casdon Jardine makes his way past Northern Oklahoma College-Enid sophomore Kole Talbott as he goes to dunk the ball Monday, March 20, 2017, during the NJCAA Division I men's basketball tournament at the Hutchinson Sports Arena in Hutchinson, Kan.

BOISE — Casdon Jardine has received his release from the Boise State University men’s basketball team after one season with the Broncos.

The sophomore wing, who graduated from Twin Falls High School and played at the College of Southern Idaho for one year, announced the news Thursday afternoon on Twitter.

“This year has been a huge growing and learning experience for me. I’m incredibly grateful for Bronco Nation and the love and support that I’ve felt through this year. Thank you to everyone who made this year one to remember,” Jardine wrote in his tweet. “With that being said, I’ve received my release from BSU and will be pursing [sic] my basketball and academic career elsewhere.

“I know God has a plan and I’m excited to see what this next chapter will bring. #OnlyLove”

Neither Jardine nor the Boise State athletic department could be reached for comment.

Jardine graduated from Twin Falls in 2014, the same year he helped the Bruins boys basketball team win the 4A state title. He then served a two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints before enrolling at CSI in 2016.

Jardine played 29 games for the Golden Eagles as a freshman and averaged 10.4 points (44.3 percent field goal shooting) and 6.0 rebounds in 20.2 minutes per game. He transferred to Boise State following his one year at CSI.

In his one season with the Broncos, Jardine appeared in 18 games and played 78 total minutes (4.3 per game), the third-fewest among the 13 players listed on Boise State’s roster. He shot 9-of-26 (34.6 percent) from the field, scored 28 total points and grabbed 22 rebounds.

Jardine’s release leaves the Broncos with one open scholarship, according to the Idaho Statesman.
