Cal Poly men's basketball coach Joe Callero announced two more additions to his team on Monday. Mission Prep senior Andy Rowley will join the Mustangs as a walk-on next season while Junior College transfer David Nwaba will receive a full scholarship.
Rowley led the Royals to a 24-9 record and appearance in the Division-5 State Tournament. The 6'0" point guard had a 67-27 record in his three seasons playing varsity at Mission Prep. "What we like so much about Andy is he's such a tough hard nosed, competitive athlete. He has the personality and the competitiveness to say that I'm coming to Cal Poly and I'm not coming to be on the team, I'm coming to compete and help the team" said Callero.
Nwaba is a 6'4" wing player who has three seasons of eligibility left. Nwaba was named Western State Conference South Division Player of the Year after averaging 21 points and 9 rebounds at Santa Monica Junior College. In high school, Nwaba was a two-time All Western League Most Valuable Player at University High School in Los Angeles. "Will probably be one of the most athletic players we've ever had in the gym" said Callero about Nwaba.
Callero also announced the departure of two freshman. Forward Zach Allmon, who was a teammate of Rowley's at Mission Prep is transferring to Vanguard University in Costa Mesa, California. Forward Joshua Hall will transfer to a junior college in Washington State.
Cal Poly will have five new players next season. In addition to Rowley and Nwaba three guards have signed with the Mustangs. Markel Leonard (Hercules, California), Ridge Shipley (Carrollton, Texas) and Taylor Sutlive (San Antonio, Texas) will join the team.
