There has been speculation for the past week that sophomore point guard Angel Rodriguez would be heading to Coral Gables to play for head coach Jim Larranaga and the Miami Hurricanes.
On Wednesday, the speculations became reality as Rodriguez announced that he would indeed be going to Miami.
Despite being named to the All-Big 12 second team after a stellar sophomore season, Rodriguez opted to transfer in order to be closer to his mother and two brothers in Puerto Rico.
Rodriguez is expected to attempt to get a waiver from the NCAA in order to become immediately eligible, rather than having to sit out a year.
With Hurricanes point guard Shane Larkin deciding to take his talents to the next level in the NBA, there is a point guard opening in the backcourt that Rodrgiuez could have immediately.
