The Keith Dambrot era is officially underway as the Dukes land a talented transfer.
Memphis sophomore guard Craig Randall (6-foot-4, 173 pounds) announced today his intention to transfer to Duquesne. Randall will have to sit a year but will have two years of eligibility remaining.
Randall was the Tigers’ leading bench scorer last season averaging 5.2 points per game. Randall was a point guard at high school in Youngstown, Ohio but Tubby Smith moved him to shooting guard last season. He was averaging double digits scoring well into December before going into a scoring slump that dropped his average down.
When coming out of high school, here’s how a recruiting service described Randall: “Randall is wired to score. He’s capable of scoring from deep via his jump shot or using his quickness to gain separation with the dribble.”
Randall is the second transfer that Dambrot has landed, the first being Akron point guard Tavian Dunn-Martin.
Both Randall and Dunn-Martin will be members of Duquesne’s back court in the 2018 season.
