Out of high school, Angelo Chol was ranked a four-star recruit, the #10 power forward in the class of 2011, the #48 player overall, and even earned a roster spot on the prestigious USA Junior National Team. As senior at Herbert Hoover High School in San Diego, Ca, he listed offers from several high major schools including North Carolina, Kansas and Arizona. Eventually choosing to commit to play for the University of Arizona in February 2011.
On May 1st, Chol received his release from the University of Arizona, becoming free to contact any school he would consider potentially transferring to. The lefty forward originally from the Sudan, played in 28 of 35 games for the Wildcats, averaging 1.9 ppg and 2.0 rpg in his sophomore season. On the subject of his two years in Tucson, Chol said, "Arizona taught me a lot and really helped me understand the game of basketball better throughout the past two years".
There is no doubt there will be many schools that will try to court the 6'9 forward, but Chol hasn't made any official list just yet, "I don't have any schools I'm considering yet, but hopefully will make a decision next week".
Concerning the factors that will play a major role in his decision, Chol mentioned, "I want the opportunity to consistently… and in an up-tempo offense, which is my type of style." The former wildcat also mentioned he intends to make a visit before he commits to a school.
Chol's former high school coach has been quoted saying that San Diego State University is a possible destination and on the topic of the Aztecs, Chol commented, "I don't know any of the coaches, but I have met Coach Fisher."
As for his offseason plans, Chol intends to spend a lot of time in the gym. Especially emphasizing focus on improving his overall offensive game, as well as improving his play with his right hand.
Due to NCAA transfer rules, Chol will have to sit out the next season, becoming eligible for the 2014-15 season.
