Cole Stefan Joins North Dakota Program

Late last week, it was announced that former Wisconsin Green Bay (and former LaSalle) guard Cole Stefan had joined the North Dakota program. I first saw it made official by Tom Miller.

Out of high school, he committed to LaSalle, and also had offers from schools like Auburn, Northern Iowa, USC, Utah State, and Nevada, a nice collection of schools. He left LaSalle after one season, citing medical reasons. He joined four others who transferred out of UWGB after last season, after an investigation in their head coach.

He didn't do a lot last season, scoring 3.4 PPG, shooting 34% from the field and 33% from downtown. He played about 14 minutes per game.

He will be seeking a waiver from the NCAA to play immediately, and could play right away if he is granted that waiver, adding to UND's backcourt depth. With the high grades he got out of high school, it's clear he could be a big help, even though he has struggled through his first two years. It's a good pickup for head coach Brian Jones.
