FORT COLLINS, Colo. - Colorado State men's basketball head coach Larry Eustachy announced Wednesday that transfer point guard Antwan Scott has signed a financial aid agreement and will enroll in graduate classes at CSU while playing his final season of collegiate eligibility for the Rams.
"We are excited to announce the addition of Antwan Scott to our program," said Eustachy. "We are optimistic he can step in and provide a leadership role on and off the court. His experience should allow him to make an immediate impact for our program. Antwan is a tough kid who has overcome a lot of adversity in his life. We feel fortunate that he has chosen us, and we are looking forward to him being a part of the Ram family."
Scott, a 6-1, 180-pound product from Wylie, Texas, comes to Colorado State after one season at Grambling State where he played in 25 games with 21 starts and averaged 15.7 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game in 33.6 minutes per contest for the Tigers.
Scott began his collegiate career with two stellar seasons at Ranger College in Ranger, Texas, where he led the squad to a 20-10 record, a conference championship, and an NJCAA Region V quarterfinal appearance as a sophomore in 2011-12. He also garnered first-team all-conference and all-Region V accolades.
Following his two-year stint at Ranger, Scott signed to play at Idaho as a junior in 2012-13 but left the Vandals program without ever playing a game, transferring to Grambling State to be closer to his family after his mother slipped into a coma due to complications from a surgery. Scott's mother, Theresa, passed away in October of 2013, just prior to his junior season at Grambling State, where he completed his bachelor's degree in criminal justice.
