A coveted immediately-eligible transfer hit the market on this week.

Colorado State guard Jon Octeus is leaving the Rams for his final season of eligibility. Because he is expected to graduate in July, Octeus should be able to right away at his next destination.

“Jon has been a big part of the success we have had at Colorado State over the last two years,” coach Larry Eustachy said in a release. “More than just a talented player, he is a leader and a person of character. We wish Jon the best moving forward. He gave CSU two outstanding seasons, but more importantly, he will leave our program with his degree. You can't ask for much more out of a student-athlete.”

Octeus transferred to Colorado State after spending his freshman season at Wabash Valley College. The Miami native should have no shortage of high-major suitors. Octeus, a 6-foot-4 guard, averaged 13.4 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.3 assists last season.

Colorado State went 16-16 last season and is expected to compete near the top of the league next season.
