Former Air Force guard Tre Coggins has found a landing spot, according to a report from ESPN.com.
The 6-foot-1 Coggins is heading to Cal-State Fullerton where he will have to sit out a year before becoming eligible to play his final two seasons in 2015-2016.
Coggins averaged 16.0 points as a sophomore with the Falcons, but he made the decision to leave the program in early May. Staying for his junior season would have triggered a five-year military commitment, and that’s something that Coggins was not prepared for. He also struggled with the requirements that come with being a cadet at a service academy.
“He said, ‘I’m not going to wait for someone else to make it. I’m going to transfer,’” head coach Dave Pilipovich said at the time. “He said, ‘Coach, I’ve been fighting this for three years.’”
