Shane Larkin's decision to return to Miami or declare for the draft is rapidly approaching but Miami may have already found their first choice to replace him. Former Kansas State guard, Angel Rodriguez, has announced his intention to transfer and Miami is said to have a good shot
Heard today that UM has good shot with point guard Angel Rodriguez, who is transferring from K-State. Would be a major get.

Kansas State's Bruce Weber had this to say on the Rodriguez transfer...
“After multiple conversations, Angel feels an obligation to be closer to his family,” Weber said. “His mother is raising his two younger brothers all by herself in San Juan and he just wants to be able to see them more often.”
That quote leads you to believe that Rodriguez may be available immediately, although he would have to get a hardship waiver from the NCAA for that to happen.
Rodriguez averaged over 11 points and 5 assists per game last season for K-State.
