USF Bulls guard Shedrick Haynes transferring to D-II Tarleton State

USF point guard Shedrick Haynes, who played sparingly in his only season with the Bulls, said Monday he is transferring to Division II Tarleton State in Texas for his final year of college basketball.

Haynes, a Bradenton native who averaged 1.1 points per game for the Bulls as a junior, will be at his fourth school in as many years, having played at Manatee Community College and Lackawanna (Pa.) Junior College before signing with USF. Bulls coach Stan Heath never came to trust Haynes enough to see significant playing time, relying heavily on starting point guard Anthony Crater.

Haynes could have transferred to another Division I program, but would have had to sit out a season before playing again, and he's joining a successful program at Tarleton, located about 100 miles southwest of Dallas. The Texans went 24-6 last season and won the Lone Star Conference championship, finishing the season ranked No. 17 in the Division II coaches' poll.

USF had two reserve guards request a release so they could transfer after the 2010-11 season, with sophomore Mike Burwell as the other transfer. Burwell has not announced a decision as to where he'll play his remaining two seasons of college basketball. Heath has already signed two point guards to shore up his depth, adding junior college standout Blake Nash and Anthony Collins, a high school guard from Houston.
