TUCSON, Ariz. Arizona has lost its second frontcourt player in two weeks with the decision of sophomore foward Angelo Chol to transfer. Chol, a 6-foot-9, 225-pound sophomore forward from San Diego, has not decided on where he will transfer. His decision comes two weeks after freshman Grant Jerrett declared himself eligible for the NBA Draft. Chol, whose shot-blocking and hustle made him a fan favorite at McKale Center, averaged 1.9 points, 2.0 rebounds and 8.5 minutes in 28 games this season. He was a relative newcomer to basketball who grew up in Sudan, and his offensive skills were unpolished. Even without Jerrett in the picture, there was some thought that he might redshirt next season in hopes of acquiring a larger role the following year. After much consideration and several conversations with both Coach Sean Miller and my family, I have decided to transfer to another university, Chol said in a statement released by Arizona. I believe this change will put me in a better situation to earn more playing time and a starting role elsewhere. I have enjoyed my time in Tucson and want to thank my teammates, coaching staff and the fans for their support. Arizona returns Kaleb Tarczewski and Brandon Ashley at the inside positions, and they'll be joined by incoming freshman Aaron Gordon and junior Matt Korcheck, who redshirted this past season after transferring in from junior college. I wish Angelo much success in his future, Miller said. I believe that Angelo's best days as a basketball player are ahead of him. He did a tremendous job in his two years in our program both on the court and in the classroom. He is one of the finest people and nicest kids that I have ever coached. The San Diego Union-Tribune reports San Diego State as a possible destination for Chol. Chol was a top-100 recruit out of high school who chose Arizona over the likes of North carolina and Kansas. "He really liked it there," Ollie Goulston, his coach at Hoover High School in San Diego told the Union-Tribune. "It was a great atmosphere. He liked the coaching staff. There were no negatives that way. They definitely wanted to keep him. He was well thought of there. He just wants to play a bigger role and have more consistent minutes."
