Former Purdue guard Kelsey Barlow has transferred to play at UIC.
Former Purdue Boilermakers guard Kelsey Barlow has transferred to play for the Illinois-Chicago Flames, as ESPN Chicago's Scott Powers reports. UIC coach Howard Moore announced the move on Thursday, which allows Barlow to have one season of remaining eligibility for the 2013-2014 season.
As part of the transfer, Barlow is required to sit out the 2012-2013 season, but he'll likely be a key part of the Flames' backcourt during the following season. Last year with Purdue, Barlow averaged 8.3 points per game, 3.7 rebounds per game and 1.7 assists per game as a part-time starter.
In addition to the transfer of Barlow, Moore also announced the addition of a pair of walk-on players: Austin Angel from New Trier in Illinois and Ngijol Songolo from Memorial in Wisconsin.
