Paschal Chukwu, the New Haven Register’s State Player of the Year for the 2013-14 season, will transfer after just one season from Providence College, according to Jon Rothstein from CBSSports.
Chukwu will have to sit out a season before having three years left of eligibility.
Chukwu averaged 14.3 points, 11 rebounds and five blocked shots this past season for the Jesuits, who went 27-1 during his senior season.
In a story by the Providence Journal’s Kevin McNamara, Providence coach Ed Cooley said Chukwu came to him last week, “and definitely caught us all off guard.”
“All I’ll say is he has to fit the school and the school has to fit him. He said that wasn’t happening,” Cooley told McNamara.
