Kearney adds to the already growing list of transferring Sun Devils

Brandan Kearney, who transferred in from Michigan State after sitting out one year is on the move again. The news was first reported by Doug Haller of the Arizona Republic.

Kearney played in 16 games for the Sun Devils last season, his only start was the upset win over Arizona in Tempe. He averaged 1.4 points per game and 7.3 minutes per game in his short stint with the Sun Devils.

The former Spartan is the fourth departure from the program this offseason which includes redshirt freshman Caelen Robinson and associate head coach Eric Musselman. Arizona State recruit Octavious Ellis, who was originally committed to the Sun Devils also reopened his recruitment.

Bo Barnes has graduated from ASU and said his time as a Sun Devil is finished but could enroll in graduate school elsewhere and still play another season. Richie Edwards meanwhile has exhausted his eligibility and will return to play in New Zealand.

When it comes to replacing Kearney the Sun Devils will have a few options. Chance Murray will be a sophomore next season and came off the bench early in the season showing signs of solid play at times.

The most likely player to fight for a starting spot at point guard will be incoming freshman and three-star recruit Tra Holder. He averaged 22.7 points, 6.8 rebounds and 4.8 assists  per game during his senior season in high school according to Max Preps.

Gerry Blakes, who is transferring in from San Bernadino Valley Community College is another promising addition who could fight for a starting role. Blakes averaged 20.5 points and 5.5  rebounds and four assists per game for SBVC during the 2013-'14 campaign.

One player who is still in limbo is high-flying guard Shaquielle McKissic. He could receive another year of eligibility by the NCAA in the coming weeks.

This article was modified to correct the statistical information for Gerry Blakes, House of Sparky regrets the error.
