Greg Whittington isn't done with college.

Dismissed by Georgetown on November 30, Whittington intends to transfer rather than turn professional, according to an ESPN report.

"I'm definitely looking to continue my career at another school," Whittington told

The 6-foot-8 forward will reportedly visit Rutgers this weekend with Memphis, Nebraska and South Carolina also interested. 

Former Georgetown assistant Robert Kirby now holds the same job with Memphis while Kenya Hunter left the Hilltop for Nebraska this offseason.

Whittington, who entered this season as a junior, did not play this campaign after tearing his left ACL this summer and undergoing surgery. The Columbia native only played 13 games last season before an academic suspension sidelined him for the final 19 games. At the time of his suspension, Whittington ranked second behind Otto Porter in points and rebounds (7.0). His last game for Georgetown was on January 8 in a loss to Pittsburgh.

According to the report, Whittington said that he is about two months away from being cleared to play, meaning he potentially could have played for the Hoyas in February. 

"I'd like to thank Georgetown. I really appreciate everything they did for me -- both the coaching staff and the players," Whittington told ESPN, "but now it's time for me to move to another stage in my life."
