Myron Gardner and Galen Alexander announced Friday that they will transfer from Georgetown.

Alexander posted a message to Twitter, while Gardner’s attorney told the Washington Post of his intentions to leave the program. 

Gardner and Alexander are the third and fourth players to leave the program in a span of less than two weeks, following James Akinjo and Josh LeBlanc.

Gardner, Alexander and LeBlanc were named in two complaints in D.C. Superior Court, which alleged that Gardner sexually assaulted and harassed a female student and that the three players took part in a burglary and harassed the student and her roommate. They had continued to play for the Hoyas while the university’s Office of Student Conduct investigated the claims.

One of the two complaints was resolved this week without an admission of guilt, though the players agreed to stay 50 feet away from the complainant.

Alexander spoke further about the allegations against him in his farewell message on Twitter.

“I have been publicly shamed, threatened and criminalized,” he wrote. “I have been publicly accused and targeted by the media and my peers of crimes I did not commit. My character has been defamed and that needs to be cleared up more than anything else. Very soon it will come to light that I am innocent and had nothing to do with the false allegations.”

Meanwhile, Akinjo is at Arizona this weekend on an official visit, according to ESPN and 247Sports. Arizona has been listed as a possible destination for the transfer.

The 6-3 Hoyas host former Big East rival Syracuse (5-4) on Saturday.
