K-State transfer Angel Rodriguez done deal to Miami
Miami has quickly found a replacement for Shane Larkin, but now the question becomes whether Kansas State transfer Angel Rodriguez will be able to play next season for the Hurricanes.
The 5-foot-11 point guard, who spent his first two seasons with the Wildcats, will attempt to get a waiver from the NCAA to play next season due to health issues with his family, sources told CBSSports.com. Rodriguez played high school ball at Krop High near Miami, and his family lives in Puerto Rico. Rodriguez said he was leaving Kansas State to be near his family.
Rodriguez averaged 11.4 points and 5.2 assists last season for a Kansas State team that won 27 games.
If granted a waiver by the NCAA, he'd step in and fill the void created when point guard Shane Larkin decided to leave for the NBA. The 'Canes also lose the rest of their starting lineup. Next year, though, will likely be a rebuilding season in Coral Gables, and it could be more beneficial for Jim Larranaga and his staff if Rodriguez sits out next season and has two years remaining.
