The University of Miami men’s basketball team officially signed San Jose State transfer Rashad Muhammad, younger brother of Minnesota Timberwolves player Shabazz Muhammad.
Muhammad, a 6-6 guard, will sit out this season and have two years of eligibility remaining. He led the Aztecs in scoring as a freshman (13.2 ppg) and sophomore (13.9 ppg).
“Over the last several years we have had great success with transfer student-athletes,” UM coach Jim Larrañaga said. “Rashad extends a long line of outstanding players who have joined our program after two years of college experience, and we’re excited about his addition.’’
As a rookie, he set the Mountain West Conference freshman record for three pointers made in a season (75) and posted the second-highest mark for single-season three-pointers made at San Jose State.
