According to a report, former USF Dons point guard Cody Doolin—who left the team after a altercation with a teammate in November—will transfer to UNLV.
CBSSports.com confirmed an initial report from Rivals.com that Doolin, who averaged 13 points and seven assists a game in the four games he played this season, plans to apply for a waiver with the NCAA in order to be immediately eligible to play for the Runnin’ Rebels in 2014-15.
Doolin remained enrolled at USF and was reportedly on track to graduate this spring with a degree in finance.
Doolin averaged 9.8 points, 4.4 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 1.5 steals in three-plus years for the Dons, averaging 32.1 minutes per game in his career and was a starter from his freshman year on. He has career shooting marks of 42.4/32.0/78.5.
The Dons, meanwhile, have been something of a surprise this year in the West Coast Conference without Doolin. Their 73-62 win over Saint Mary’s Thursday night moved USF into sole possession of third place in the conference at 10-5 and they are 17-10 overall. It was their first win over the Gaels since 2006.
The Dons brought back a lot of experience this season, but Doolin was expected to be the catalyst. Instead, Avry Holmes, a sophomore from Salem, Ore., and junior Matt Glover, a transfer from Penn State, have shared much of the playmaking responsibilities. Where Doolin averaged seven assists per game in his four games, Holmes and Glover combine for 6.2 assists per contest.
