Former San Jose State guard Rashad Muhammad has transferred to Miami, sources confirmed to NBCSports.com on Friday night.

Jeff Goodman of ESPN first reported the news. DePaul and San Francisco were also reportedly in the mix for his services.

Rashad Muhammad is the brother of ex-UCLA Bruin and current Minnesota Timberwolves guard Shabazz Muhammad.

The 6-foot-6 sophomore averaged 13.9 points and 3.3 rebounds per game, scoring in double figures 43 times in 58 games with the Spartans. The sophomore was the bright spot on a 2-28 team that failed to defeat a Division I opponent during the 2014-15 season. Muhammad announced his decision to transfer out of the program on May 23.

Muhammad will have two years of eligibility remaining after sitting out the 2015-16 season, per NCAA transfer rules. Following the 2015-16 campaign, the Hurricanes will need to replace the production of Sheldon McClellan and Angel Rodriguez, the team’s top two returning scorers. Miami’s back court depth took a hit this spring when Manu Lecomte and Deandre Burnett both decided to leave the program.
