Good news for Andy Toole and the Robert Morris men’s basketball program as two of their incoming freshman will be able to suit for the Colonials this season.
Pittsburgh Sports Now has confirmed that both Rasheem Dunn and Ferron Flavors will be eligible to play during the 2021-22 season after receiving a waiver from the NCAA. Both players transferred to Robert Morris this off-season, Dunn from St. John’s and Flavors from Oklahoma State.
This will be Dunn’s fourth team as he started out playing at St. Francis Brooklyn, before transferring to Cleveland State. He never played for the Vikings after sitting out one year because of NCAA transfer rules and then head coach Dennis Felton was fired, which prompted him to leave.
For the last two seasons, Dunn has suited up for St. John’s. While at St. John’s, Dunn (6-foot-2, 190 pounds) played in 52 games and started 31 of them. In those games, he averaged 10.8 points, 3.4 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.2 steals per game. During his last season at St. Francis, Dunn averaged a career-high 15.4 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game.
Flavors (6’3″, 190) was a graduate transfer for the Cowboys this season, after spending his college career at three different schools. After attending South Mountain Community College, Fairfield, and California Baptist, he averaged 3.4 points and 0.8 rebounds per game in his lone season at Oklahoma State.
Toole will have a revamped roster having added plenty of size and talent with the additions of Flavors, Dunn, along with 6-foot-11 forward Brandon Stone from LaSalle, 6-foot-8 forward Justin Winston from Saint Bonaventure and 6-foot-8 forward Mattia Acunzo from Toledo.
