BOONE, NC. — Another day has come and gone in the 2017 off-season, and another notable player has been added to the transfer list.
On Tuesday, guard Randy Onwuasor received his release from the Southern Utah Thunderbirds, thus becoming a graduate transfer. A trio of power conference programs have already reached out to the California native, with more sure to follow in the coming days.
Then, on Wednesday, another talented guard with a bright future received his release, and will be a good addition to any team he commits to.
After a rather impressive first season in the NCAA, shooting guard Patrick Good requested his release from the Appalachian State Mountaineers, and the program facilitated his request immediately.
Good, a native of Johnson City, Tennessee, had himself a strong first season in the NCAA. He averaged an even 7.0 points per contest, while playing over 22 minutes a night.
He also chipped in with 2.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game, while shooting 41.7% from the field and 41.0% from three point range. He had an assist-to-turnover ratio of nearly 2-to-1 for the season, finishing with 45 assists to 23 turnovers.
Before coming to Appalachian State, Good had a stellar prep career at David Crockett. He left as the school’s all-time leading scorer (2,716 points) and holds the all-time assists record (780 assists).
He shot 51.4% from the field, and 40.0% from three point range, for his high school career.
Heading into 2017-18, Good was in a position to see an increase in both minutes and production with the Mountaineers, as his role increased with the team. Instead, he becomes the second guard to transfer from the program this off-season, joining sophomore Emarius Logan, who is still uncommitted for the 2018-19 season.
Good will sit out the 2017-18 season due to transfer regulations, and will have three years of eligibility remaining, beginning with the 2018-19 campaign.
