Eastern Michigan Guard Darell Combs To Transfer

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

After one year with the Eagles, Darell Combs is set to transfer from Eastern Michigan.

Per Chicago Hoops, Eastern Michigan guard Darell Combs has been grated a release and is transferring from the university. Combs, a sophomore, was a transfer from Blinn College in Texas and played only one season at EMU. With J.R. Sims graduating and Jalen Ross transfering, Combs was looked at to get more playing time than he did this past season, averaging 15.1 minutes per game.

"I am looking for a great relationship with the head coach and somewhere that I can just enjoy myself and at least feel safe.  I just want an overall better opportunity." -Combs

Two things to make of his comment:

1) This is nothing more than speculation, but it looks like the relationship between Combs and head coach Rob Murphy was a big reason for his decision.

2) Safety. Safe from what? Ypsilanti? Playing time? Something else? One thing is for certain, none of us really know much of anything, but it looks like Combs had to get out of whatever situation he's in right now.

Combs, 6'1", played in 36 games for the Eagles this past season averaging 7.5 points per game with a field goal percentage of 34. He was third on the team in 3-pointers made (36), free throw percentage (76 percent) and assists (50).

With Ross and Combs both transferring, this gives Murphy two more scholarships to work with for the 2014 class.
