Iowa State transfer finds a new destination

Former Iowa State guard Sherron Dorsey-Walker has found a new home as the redshirt sophomore took to Twitter on Saturday to announce his new destination. The 6-foot-4 guard will play closer to home and become a member of the Oakland Golden Grizzlies.



A native of Detroit, Dorsey-Walker should be a good fit playing in head coach Greg Kampe’s uptempo offense, where the guard could see a much larger role.

Dorsey-Walker had problems getting minutes last season as a redshirt freshman on a deep Iowa State team, but with a limited bench early in the 2014-15 season, the sophomore still never found his way on the floor for the Cyclones. Dorsey-Walker scored nine total points and grabbed four rebounds in 39 minutes of action in 2014-15.

Due to NCAA transfer restrictions, Dorsey-Walker will sit until at least the start of next season and could have to wait until the first semester is finished if the waiver process is not involved.
