Former South Alabama guard Michael Flowers is transferring to Washington State, giving the Cougars a potent scorer for next season.

Flowers averaged 21.0 points for South Alabama last season, the 15th best scoring average in the country.

The 6-1 senior played three seasons at Western Michigan before transferring to South Alabama ahead of the 2020-21 season.

“I chose Washington State because I wanted to play in a Power 5 conference and I felt they were the best fit,” said Flowers, per ESPN. “The coaching staff showed a great interest in me and my goals. I like the way coach Kyle Smith allows his point guards to make plays and helps put players in position to be effective.”

Flowers will have one season of eligibility left due to the NCAA’s COVID-19 allowance that was granted to all winter sports athletes.

Washington State finished 14-13 (7-12 Pac 12) this season and lost leading scorer guard Isaac Bonton, who averaged 17.7 points.
