FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Colorado State men’s basketball Head Coach Tim Miles announced Wednesday that former Arizona shooting guard Daniel Bejarano has signed a financial aid agreement and will transfer to CSU to compete for the Rams.
“Daniel will bring a great skill set to CSU basketball,” said Miles. “He is a tremendous shooter, he plays well without the ball and he competes well. I expect him to be a very productive player in the Mountain West and we are excited to have him joining us.”
Bejarano (pronounced bay-har-ah-no) was ranked as one of the top recruits in the nation when he signed with the Wildcats out of high school. A gifted shooting guard, he was ranked as the No. 40 overall prospect in the country by Bob Gibbons' All-Star Sports Top 250 and the No. 13 shooting guard by rivals.com to go with a scout grade of 95 by ESPN.
A 6-4, 208-pound product out of Phoenix’s North High School, Bejarano will join the Rams with three years of eligibility remaining, but will sit out the 2011-12 season due to NCAA transfer rules before stepping on the court for the Rams as a redshirt sophomore in 2012-13.
He saw action in eight games as a true freshman for Arizona in 2010-11, tallying eight total points and four rebounds while playing 3.8 minutes per contest.
Bejarano earned numerous accolades in high school, including being selected as a 2010 Jordan Brand All-American and a McDonald's High School All-America nominee. He was a four-time Phoenix metro region Player of the Year. A 2009 and 2010 all-Arizona selection by the Arizona Republic, he also earned 2010 Big School (Class 4 and 5A) Player of the Year honors. Bejarano led North High School to back-to-back state titles as a junior and senior, and in 2010 earned first-team “Best in the West” honors from the Long Beach Press-Telegram.
