Vinny Zollo is back on the recruiting trail.
Zollo, who just completed his freshman campaign at Western Kentucky University, was granted his release this week by Hilltoppers coach Ray Harper and plans to transfer to another school next season. Zollo said Friday he spent the past two weeks evaluating his future.
“It was a long process that took about a week and a half,” he said.
Zollo said the whirlwind of change within the athletics department impacted his decision. The Hilltoppers changed coaches in the middle of the season and currently are looking for a new athletics director. Harper was given the job permanently
“When you have things like that go on, you have to step back and see what’s best for you,” he said. “The best thing was to take a step back and see what’s best for me, which was for me to move on and find a new place to go.”
