Former Tulane standout joins San Diego State
San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - Josh Davis, formerly of Tulane, was added to the San Diego State roster after the school granted him an Athletic Offer of Aid.
The 6-foot-8 forward, who graduated from Tulane this spring, will be a fifth- year graduate student at San Diego State with one year of eligibility remaining. He will be available to play right away for the Aztecs.
"We are very excited that we will have Josh Davis coming to San Diego State as a fifth-year graduate student, who can play immediately," head coach Steve Fisher said.
Davis was one of just 14 players in the country to average a double-double last season (17.6 ppg, 10.7 rpg) and was a First-Team All-Conference USA selection. In 2011 Davis, who transferred from NC State to Tulane, was named to the All-Conference USA Third-Team after nearly averaging a double-double (11.2 ppg, 9.3 rpg) for the campaign.
"He will bring great experience and athletic versatility that we have been very successful with in the past. He will provide an immediate impact," Fisher said.
Davis will join a San Diego State squad that has made the NCAA Tournament in a school record four consecutive seasons.
