Point guard Cody Doolin is transferring to the UNLV basketball team from the University of San Francisco, a source confirmed to the Las Vegas Sun.
The 6-foot-2 Doolin averaged 13 points and seven assists in four games this season before leaving San Francisco last November, citing personal reasons.
He has one year of eligibility remaining, which could come next season. UNLV is expected to apply for a waiver with the NCAA for immediate eligibility.
One report says a practice altercation with a teammate led to Doolin leaving San Francisco.
He’s a true point guard with more than 100 career starts. He averaged 12.2 points and 5.6 assists per game last season.
He’ll be put on scholarship at UNLV, which puts the Rebels over their limit of 13 scholarships. That’s an indication the coaching staff expects one non-senior on the current team to leave during the offseason.
UNLV has been hindered by inconsistent play at times this season at point guard, using Deville Smith, Kendall Smith and Daquan Cook.
UNLV’s roster appears to be forming up nicely for next season. The Rebels have a top-5 recruiting class with Goodluck Okonoboh, Dwayne Morgan and Rashad Vaughn, and should return standouts Khem Birch and Roscoe Smith from this year’s squad.
