Nevada transfer forward Cole Huff decided to continue his college career at Creighton. Huff announced his decision via Twitter on Sunday evening following his visit to Iowa, the other finalist for his services.
Clint Parks, Huff’s former AAU coach, told Scott Dochterman of The Gazette, that the 6-foot-8 forward was down to Iowa and Creighton. An announcement was expected shortly after his trip to Iowa City. That was the last stop on his visits. He spent the previous weekend in Omaha.
Huff was also being pursued by Michigan and Dayton.
Huff averaged 12.4 points and 5.4 rebounds per game in a breakout sophomore campaign. He left the program in early April, however it took several weeks for the two sides to comprise on his transfer restrictions. Huff is free to explore Pac-12 and West Coast programs located in Southern California, though, he is destined to become a member of the Bluejays, resuming his career at the start of the 2015-2016 season.
He becomes the second big-time transfer Greg McDermott has been able to land in the last three weeks. On April 13, former Boston University point guard Maurice Watson committed to Creighton. The duo will provide quality competition during practice as they both sit out the 2014-2015 season due to NCAA transfer rules.
Huff made a noticeable jump from his freshman to sophomore season, and the additional year will give him time to continue to build on his 205-pound frame.
“He needs to develop strength,” Parks told The Gazette. “He needs to develop his body and get better in the weight room during his redshirt year.”
CBT listed Huff as the sixth best available transfer.
