Estan Tyler Transfers to UND

I missed this a while back, but UND added a transfer in UMKC guard Estan Tyler. Tyler will be eligible to play for the 2014-15 season, and will have two seasons of eligibility remaining.

Tyler is a 6'1'' PG with DI experience, which will be sorely needed after next season, when Aaron Anderson, Troy Huff, and Jamal Webb will all graduate. He led UMKC in scoring with 11.0 PPG last year, including scoring 12 points in a win over UND. He also averaged three assists per game in each of his two seasons.

Tyler shot 43% from downtown last season, and had a 22.3 ARate. Though his turnovers were higher than you would like to see from a PG, and he was not very efficient inside the arc, there is certainly enough production there to think that he will be an excellent player for North Dakota during his final two seasons. He is a name to watch for North Dakota in the future, as he will factor in a big way in their backcourt rotation in 2014.
