Once again, Dr. John Giannini shows that La Salle is more than willing to add and integrate talented transfers into its program. The Explorers have had excellent additions in the recent past like Ramon Galloway and Tyrone Garland and, per release, Jordan Price, who played one season at Auburn University, will transfer to La Salle University and play men’s basketball, Giannini announced today.
“Jordan is high in character and talent and comes from a great family,” Giannini said. “We are committed to pushing Jordan to reach his full potential as an all-around player and he is eager to accept this challenge. I am excited about his mindset coming into our program and the contribution he can make to our future success.”
Price (6-5, 230) averaged 5.4 ppg. and shot 39% from three-point range as a freshman in the SEC. He scored a career-high 19 points versus Rhode Island and matched an SEC record by making 11 straight three-pointers in December.
Price will be eligible to play during the 2014-15 season after sitting out this year due to NCAA transfer regulations. With La Salle losing Tyreek Duren, Sam Mills and Tyrone Garland after this coming season (2013-14), Price’s shot making ability will be welcomed in Philly.
