Pancake Thomas received his release from Hartford and announced he was transferring. His timing is curious for two reasons; one, it’s late August; two, the news came down Wednesday on National Waffle Day.

Thomas, whose given name is Cleveland, is a graduate transfer who will be eligible to play this season for his next school. But with classes having already started or about to start, finding a new school that still has a scholarship available and getting enrolled quickly could be challenging.

“Our biggest priority for Cleveland was that he graduate from the University of Hartford with a valuable degree,” Hartford coach John Gallagher said in a statement. “That happened. Beyond wishing him the very best, we don’t comment on other program’s players. We are very excited about our group and the upcoming season.”

The 6-foot-4 Thomas averaged 18.9 points a game and was selected to the America East second-team. He averaged 6.4 rebounds per game and made 43 percent of his 3-pointers. Thomas scored 35 or more in four games, including a season-high 38 against New Hampshire in Jan. 24.

Thomas, who is from Baton Rouge, La., played his first two seasons of Division I basketball at New Mexico before transferring to Hartford and sitting out the 2014-15 season due to NCAA transfer rules.
