King Transfers To SFA
June 17, 2014
NACOGDOCHES, Texas - Bobby King, who spent the 2013-14 season at Florida A&M, will transfer to Stephen F. Austin and join the Lumberjack basketball team, head coach Brad Underwood announced Tuesday afternoon.
"Bobby is an elite athlete that is coming to us with a great deal of experience," Underwood said. "He will provide an athleticism on the defensive end that will fill a gap for us, as he is a shot blocker and great rebounder. We are excited to have him, as he is a high character guy that believe will fit in well with this team both on and off the court."
The 6-7, 220-pound forward appeared in all 32 games last season for the Rattlers, making 18 starts, while averaging 5.4 rebounds and 5.0 points per game. King, who made his way to FAMU from Lawson State College, finished his junior season with a team-leading 33 blocks. He also ranked second for the Rattlers with 173 total rebounds and a .556 (70-for-126) field goal percentage. King recorded three double-figure scoring performances, pulled down 10 boards or more twice and recorded one double-double.
King will have one season of eligibility at SFA.
