WELCOME TO THE U: Canes Land Kansas State Hoops Transfer

New, comments

Rumors have been swirling for over a week now, and this morning, it appears that it's become official: Angel Rodriguez is a Cane.

On April 22nd, it was announced that Angel Rodriguez, a sophomore point guard from Kansas State would transfer.

This morning, it appears that we know his destination.

Coral Gables.

According to Jeff Borzello of CBSSports.com, Rodriguez to Miami is a done deal.

Rodriguez averaged 11 points per game last season on 36% shooting, to go along with 5 assists and 2 rebounds a night. He was an All Big-12 second team selection for his work this past season, and helped lead the Wildcats to an NCAA tournament birth and a share of the Big 12 regular season championship.

The question now is whether or not Rodriguez will get a waiver to play immediately. While nothing concrete has been reported, Canesport reported yesterday that the program felt "optimistic" regarding Rodriguez's waiver chances. If he is granted a waiver, he should start from day one at the point guard position, filling the massive void left by Shane Larkin's departure for the NBA. Rodriguez has two years of eligibility remaining plus a redshirt year, so if he is not granted a waiver, he will retain his two years of eligibility.

WELCOME TO THE U, MR. RODRIGUEZ.
