Kelsey Barlow: Purdue Transfer Lands at Illinois-Chicago

+Read full article

On Thursday, UIC head coach Howard Moore announced that Purdue transfer Kelsey Barlow had committed to the team.

Barlow, a 6-foot-5 guard, was dismissed from the Boilermakers’ program following a violation of team rules, ultimately leading to his decision to transfer.

Per NCAA rule, Barlow will have to sit out this upcoming season before having one final year of eligibility at UIC in 2013-14.

In three seasons for Purdue, Barlow started 29 games. Last season, Barlow played a career-high 24.3 minutes per game, averaging 8.3 points and 3.7 rebounds per game.

“We’re excited to bring a player of Kelsey’s caliber into our program,” Moore said in a statement. “I coached against Kelsey during his great freshman season when I was at Wisconsin, and have always been impressed with his skill-set. He will be a great asset to our younger players every day in practice during his transfer year and as a senior, I expect him to be one of the better players in the Horizon League.”

UIC was 8-22 last season, finishing just 3-15 within the Horizon League.

In addition to Barlow, Moore also announced the additions of both Austin Angel and Ngijol Songolo, both of whom will walk-on for the Flames.

Barlow’s best claim-to-fame may have been his posterization of former Ohio State big man, Jared Sullinger last season.

Barlow beat Aaron Craft off the dribble and exploded down the lane for a one-hand flush over the All-American forward. Sullinger is now a member of the Boston Celtics.
