One of the Pac-12’s best point guards announced his plans to transfer from his college basketball program late last month.
After thinking over his options, it looks like Cal point guard Darius McNeil has a new home.
The former three-star recruit took to Twitter on Tuesday night to announce he’s transferring to SMU.
“At this time, I’ve decided to transfer from Cal. I will be coming home to be closer to my mom and my family, which is the most important decision for me. Thank you to all of the colleges and universities who have reached out to me during this process. After careful consideration and constant prayers with my family, I have decided to commit to SMU,” McNeil said in a statement.

McNeil finished third on the team in scoring and second in steals per game.
The sophomore guard averaged over 11 points per game for the second consecutive year. He found success in his freshman campaign, but failed to take the next step during the 2018 season.
McNeil committed to play for head coach Wyking Jones – who was fired by Cal after just two seasons in charge of the program. He led the Bears to a 16-47 record.
Now McNeil will get a fresh state with SMU.
