As first reported on Monday by Dave Telep of ESPN.com, former Miami (OH) forward Brian Sullivan has decided to transfer to Davidson.
A 5-11 guard from Upper Arlington, Ohio, Sullivan averaged 10.3 points per game and shot 44.9% from three as a freshman in 2011-12.
As a result Sullivan became the Redhawks’ first MAC All-Rookie Team member since 2003.
Miami (OH) underwent a coaching change following the season, with Charlie Coles retiring and former Tennessee State head coach John Cooper taking over.
Sullivan will have to sit out the 2012-13 season per NCAA transfer rules, but that won’t be an issue for Bob McKillop’s Wildcats as all five starters from last season’s NCAA tournament team return.
Both Nik Cochran (10.9 ppg, 3.6 apg) and J.P. Kuhlman (10.8 ppg, 3.8 rpg) are rising seniors for a team that will be picked to repeat as Southern Conference champions.
Sullivan will be able to improve his game while working against two of the best perimeter players in the SoCon, which should pay off for the Wildcats in 2013-14.
