Smith transfers to Minnesota

Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) - Malik Smith is following his head coach to Minnesota.

The former Florida International guard, Smith, signed his tender to transfer and play with the Golden Gophers on Monday.

"It was a pleasure to coach Malik last season at FIU and I am excited that he has decided to join the Golden Gopher program," Minnesota head coach Richard Pitino said. "His knowledge of our program on and off the court will be invaluable as we start to integrate our system here at Minnesota."

The junior, who averaged 14.1 points per game last year, will be eligible to play right away pending an NCAA waiver based on a possible APR induced postseason ban at FIU.
