Bryan Metcalf of SacStateSports.com has informed me that forward Alex Tiffin of UC Davis has decided to transfer to Sacramento State.
Tiffin is a 6'9'' F that played 16.3 minuters per game last season for the Aggies as a sophomore, averaging 3.3 points and 2.7 rebounds per game. He played two seasons at UC Davis, so would then presumably have two seasons of eligibility remaining after sitting out for a season.
He shot 46% from the field last season, and 63% from the charity stripe. He was an ok rebounder for the Aggies, posting a 9.4 OR% and a 10.4 DR% for them. To be honest, that defensive rebounding rate does not jump out at you for a big man. He averaged three fouls per game and seemed to have some trouble staying on the court.
Last year when UC Davis played the Hornets, Tiffin played 11 minutes, scoring one point and grabbing one rebound while racking up four personal fouls. As a freshman, he played in 13 minutes against Sac State, but posting no line.
You can probably never have enough big guys, but Tiffin has struggled to make an impact in two seasons with UC Davis. Perhaps with a year to sit out, he will be a nice rotational player for them in his final two years.
