More help may be on the way for Cal men’s basketball as the program hosted Texas A&M-Corpus Christi graduate transfer Kareem South, according to Stadium’s Jeff Goodman.
As a senior, South averaged 13.8 points and 5.1 rebounds while shooting 36.7 percent from distance, earning a Third Team All-Southland Conference nomination.
South developed a reputation for his shooting prowess, hitting 36.4 percent of his threes and 82.2 percent of his free throws during his career with the Islanders.
Adding South into the mix would help Cal address the matter of three-point shooting. In losing Darius McNeill, the Bears lost its top perimeter threat, a role that South could conceivably fill.
South, 22, would also help remedy the Bears’ lack of experience. With McNeill and Justice Sueing having departed, redshirt senior Paris Austin and juniors Juhwan Harris-Dyson and Grant Anticevich are currently the team’s only three upperclassmen who play significant minutes.
Along with Cal, South has a scheduled visit with Northwestern and will also consider Vanderbilt, according to Goodman.
