Fresno State Lands Oklahoma State Transfer Cezar Guerrero

+Read full article

Just last spring, Fresno State made a splash by landing former Kansas State-commit Robert Upshaw.

The hometown product was widely considered to be a top-100 prospect by many, and the addition for Fresno State should pay off with huge dividends.

Now, the Bulldogs have become even more talented, as news broke that Oklahoma State transfer Cezar Guerrero has enrolled at the university.

Guerrero, a 6-foot guard who made the decision to transfer from the Cowboys’ program to be closer to his ailing mother, may very well have the chance to be cleared to play immediately.

With Upshaw and Guerrero on the court, the Bulldogs could emerge as consistent threat out west. Worst case scenario, they are certainly improving talent-wise. In addition, former Kansas signee Braeden Anderson is also ready to play, and Pacific transfer Allen Huddleston gives head coach Rodney Terry a potentially dangerous lineup in the Mountain West.

Terry is expected to file for hardship waiver on behalf of Guerrero, and given the circumstances, the NCAA could very well grant the guard immediate eligibility.

Fresno State will be young and their lineups at times could feature the aforementioned newcomers, but there shouldn’t be much doubt that the Bulldogs are rapidly improving.

Guerrero averaged 5.6 points per game last season and was a former top-100 recruit in his own right.

Prior to his most recent decision, Guerrero had also been considering offers from Long Beach State, UTEP, Washington State, New Mexico State, Cal-State Fullerton and Cal-State Northridge.

Guerrero will have three years of eligibility remaining at Fresno State.

After missing a layup in the second half and falling to the floor, Allen intentionally tripped Louisville's Raymond Spalding, who grabbed the rebound and began to head down court.
