Forward Cann picks Eckerd
Former Brandon and USF forward Zaronn Cann, whose scholarship wasn't renewed by Bulls coach Stan Heath, said Thursday he will transfer this fall to Division II Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, where he'll have three years of eligibility.
"It came down to the coaching staff and the chance to play right away and win," said Cann, who visited Florida Southern in Lakeland last weekend. "Eckerd has already established their winning, while Florida Southern is more in a rebuilding stage, which was the situation I went into at USF."
Cann, whose two years at USF were severely limited by multiple knee surgeries, totaled 20 points in eight career games with the Bulls. He said he had opportunities to continue playing in Division I, visiting James Madison and talking with coaches at Wisconsin, but did not want to sit out another season after missing so much of his first two seasons. He'll continue taking classes at USF this summer and enroll at Eckerd this fall.
