Per a report by ESPN Insider Jeff Goodman, Cleveland State guard Rob Edwards completed his transfer to Arizona State on Saturday.
Arizona State has landed Cleveland State guard Rob Edwards, source told ESPN. Will sit and have two to play. Averaged 16.5 ppg.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) April 22, 2017
In his 2016-2017 campaign, the sophomore guard from Detroit, Mich., averaged 16.5 points, shooting 41 percent from the field and 35.4 percent from three.
Edwards’ most impressive game last season came against Kentucky in Lexington during November, a performance in which he scored 28 points against a Wildcats team ranked top-10 in defensive efficiency, per KenPom.
The former member of the Horizon League All-Freshman team will join a program loaded with players at the guard position, but lacking a distinct vision for the future.
Of the nine guards, five on the roster will be seniors next season. The other four—sophomores Romaine Jackson, Grant Fogerty and Chis Odinonu—alongside incoming freshman Remy Martin, have yet to an impact on the program or warrant serious consideration for playing time, which leaves the door open for Edwards, a proven scorer.
