San Diego State has picked up a major transfer this afternoon in local Hoover High graduate Angelo Chol. Chol decided to transfer out of Arizona due to lack of playing time. Chol is a 6-foot-9 power forward and was recruited to Arizona by coach Sean Miller in 2011. Chol was in the starting rotation a freshman and will have two years of eligibility. Chol will be forced to sit out next season for the Aztecs due to NCAA policy. During the 2012/13 season Chol averaged 1.9 points in 28 games while receiving 8.5 minutes per game.
The 6-foot-9 forward visited campus on Tuesday to take a tour and meet with the San Diego State University coaches. Fellow SDSU students told us that Chol appeared to be loving his visit at San Diego State. Sources told us earlier on in the week that Chol was close to committing to San Diego State. This afternoon Chol verbally committed to San Diego State according to U-T San Diego’s Mark Zeigler. You can read more about Chol in Zeigler’s article (Link).
“One thing San Diego State has proven and shown on a consistent basis is they are very successful with long, athletic post guys,” Goulston said. “Aerick Sanders, Billy White, Malcolm Thomas, Marcus Slaughter, Kawhi Leonard, Mohammed Abukar, they’re all basically the same guy – 6-8, 6-9 guys with long, wiry bodies who can do a lot of things well.” UT-San Diego (Link)
