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.

  1. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Thursday's Rays-Yankees game

    The 10 strikeouts look flashy, but RHP Chris Archer was not his sharpest Thursday. He allowed three runs on seven hits, including three straight in the two-run second and a Gary Sanchez homer in the third, and lasted only six innings, throwing 102 pitches.

    NEW YORK — The front office did its part Thursday, making two trades to bolster the roster in a push for the playoffs. But the Rays didn't follow up in a frustrating 6-5 11-inning loss to the Yankees.

    Rays reliever Andrew Kittredge stands on the mound and can only watch as the Yankees’ Brett Gardner starts to circle the bases after his walkoff home run leading off the 11th inning.
  3. Believe it! Rays are buyers, trade for reliever Dan Jennings and 1B/DH Lucas Duda

    NEW YORK — Dan Jennings' ability to render lefty hitters useless with a sinker that gets beaten into the ground and Lucas Duda's power to blast baseballs off and over outfield walls should make the Rays better.
