San Diego State nabs impact transfer in Tulane's Josh Davis
After picking up Arizona transfer forward Angelo Chol for the future, San Diego State helped its present in a big way on Wednesday, with CBSSports.com's Jeff Goodman reporting that the Aztecs have landed Tulane transfer forward Josh Davis.
Davis, who averaged 17.6 points and 10.7 rebounds a game last season for the Green Wave, took advantage of the graduate transfer rule and will be eligible immediately for Steve Fisher's club. The Aztecs beat out Gonzaga and others for the right to add a quality, experienced scorer/rebounder.
Of course, Davis can also do stuff like this, which should make The Show happy, too:
The Aztecs already were going to be a more heavily frontcourt-oriented team this season after losing perimeter-oriented standouts like Jamaal Franklin, Chase Tapley and James Rahon, but the immediate addition of Davis should allow less experienced talents like Skylar Spencer to develop without the consummate pressure of learning how to carry a much bigger scoring load in one summer. San Diego State is always a good watch, and now with Davis, they should be quite competitive again in a Mountain West that continues to be very solid.Mike Moser Przemek Karnowski Sam Dower insane Wichita State shooting Kevin Pangos David Stockton
