Colorado State guard Antwan Scott has had a long road in his college basketball career. It all began when he started his journey at JUCO Ranger College. He played two seasons there before transferring to Idaho.
He never played for the Vandals after deciding to transfer to Grambling State to be closer to home. He averaged 15.7 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.8 assists, and 1.3 steals for the Tigers in 2013-14. He then transferred to Colorado State and that is where the biggest speed bump in his journey came along.
The speed bump came in the form of a broken foot that caused him to miss all but the first four games of the 2014-15 season with the Rams. He pushed for a sixth year of eligibility and he finally got it. College Spun shared the video of his teammates’ reactions to the awesome news.
It is a rare sight to see any college athlete to gain a fifth year of eligibility, let alone a sixth. Scott’s situation was different and he should be able to come in for the Rams and provide a huge boost.
The Rams missed Scott’s play on the court last season as they missed the NCAA Tournament for the second straight season. Congratulations to Scott and the rest of the Colorado State family. Good luck to them on their upcoming season.
