One of the top three-point shooters in the country announced his intentions to transfer to USF men’s basketball over the weekend, with Jake Boggs from UNC-Wilmington set to come to Tampa.
Boggs is making his way to Tampa by way of UNC-Wilmington, a Colonial Athletic Association member who struggled to get games scheduled last season. In all, the Seahawks had 14 games get postponed or canceled, leading to a month long break in February. Despite these delays, Boggs saw playing time in all 17 games and started all but one contest. For his sophomore season, Boggs shot 47% on all field goals, including 43% from beyond the arc (25 of 57) and averaged 10.5 points per game. He also sunk 76% of his free throws and collected 67 rebounds with 10 assists. He went for a career-high 25 points against St. Andrews last season, one of his nine double digit scoring ventures.
During his freshman season, Boggs logged playing time in all 32 games and started in seven for the Seahawks. Out of high school, Boggs played at Carmel Christian, and was named a North Carolina Private School All-Star his senior season where he lead his team to a 33-3 record.
Boggs is joining a bevy of transfers into the USF progrum, including George Mason’s Javohn Greene, Denver’s Sam Hines Jr, and Triton College (JuCo) DJ Patrick. USF’s coaching staff is looking to replace eight players who have transferred out since the beginning of the 2021 Covid Season.
