Colorado State adds immediately eligible transfer Antwan Scott

Colorado State adds immediately eligible transfer Antwan Scott

By Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer

After losing point guard Jon Octeus to transfer earlier this offseason, Colorado State needed a replacement.

And the Rams got him on Monday night, when Grambling transfer Antwan Scott announced he was heading to Colorado State.

"Coach [Larry] Eustachy is one of the best one's doing it right now, to be honest," Scott told the News Star. "It was tough, man. Tennessee is a great place. It's an amazing place. My heart is with Colorado State."

"I'm excited," Scott said. "I'm ready to do it. I'm not going to lie. I'm lost for words. I'm a Ram now."

Scott averaged 15.7 points and 3.8 assists last season for Grambling, but decided to leave when head coach Joseph Price was fired on July 1. Since Scott already graduated from Grambling, he will be eligible immediately for Colorado State.

He chose the Rams over Tennessee.

Scott should challenge fellow transfer John Gillon for the starting point guard position. Gillon sat out last season after averaging 10.6 points at Arkansas-Little Rock as a freshman. Colorado State also brings back two of the better players in the Mountain West, in guard Daniel Bejarano (16.3 ppg, 8.3 rpg) and J.J. Avila (16.6 ppg, 7.4 rpg).

The Rams went 16-16 last season.
