Four McGlynn: Towson Lands Vermont Transfer; America East Rookie of the Year

Standing at 6-foot-2, Four McGlynn brought a nice spark to a Vermont squad that went on to win the America East tournament this past season and advance to the NCAA Tournament.

McGlynn, who averaged 12.0 points per game in just over 24 minutes of action as a freshman, was tabbed as the conference’s rookie of the year in 2011-12. However, news became apparent a few weeks ago that McGlynn was set to leave the Catamounts’ program, seeking a transfer.

McGlynn had found a new home now and is headed to Towson to play for head coach Pat Skerry.

Known for his unique first name, McGlynn made a name for himself by scoring 18 points off the bench in Vermont’s opening round NCAA Tournament victory over Lamar.

Towson struggled mightifully in 2011-12, finishing the season with a 1-31 record. However, Skerry has done a wonderful job in recruiting, putting together a solid class that bodes well for the Tigers’ future. The addition of McGlynn only helps Towson’s case.

McGlynn, a Pennsylvania-native, can score the ball very well, spreading the floor with his outside shooting. The guard hit a career-high six 3-pointers in a February victory over Niagara.

Per NCAA transfer rules, McGlynn would be forced to sit out the 2012-13 season before becoming eligible in 2013-14.
