Former Boston College guard Jordan Daniels has found a new home after making the decision to transfer from the university.
Daniels, who stands at 5-foot-9, had been a starter for the Eagles for much of his short career. Last season, he began 25 games for head coach Steve Donahue, averaging 6.4 points and 2.6 assists per game.
The guard is an original native of California, before making the cross country trek to Boston College. However, a return to the west coast is not happening for this guard, as he has made the decision to attend Drake next fall. The Bulldogs announced their most recent decision on Wednesday and said that he will be eligible following the fall semester next season.
Once Daniels can hit the court, he will have three years of eligibility remaining. He will likely be able to suit up for the Bulldogs around the latter half of the non-conference slate in 2013-14.
It has been a few years since Drake has been relevant in terms of qualifying for the NCAA Tournament. In fact, a 2008 appearance in which they were upset at the buzzer by Western Kentucky, has been the school’s lone appearance in the Big Dance since 1971.
Once eligible, Daniels will likely have the opportunity to give a strong 1-2 punch at the point guard position alongside Richard Carter, who is averaging 3.8 assists per game. Carter will be a senior next season.
On the season, Drake currently stands at 8-9 overall, but the Bulldogs have won back-to-back games following a Wednesday night victory over Evansville.
