Boise State sophomore guard Paris Austin will transfer, according to a report from Evan Daniels of Scout.com.

The 6-foot-0 guard had a breakout season for the Broncos, averaging 12.3 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game. Austin will likely be a hot commodity as he is a primary ball handler who can score and distribute.

Austin will have to sit out a season due to NCAA transfer rules before he’ll have two years of eligibility remaining. One thing Austin will have time to work on will be his perimeter shooting. While Austin upped his field goal (49 percent from 39 percent) and free throw percentages (76 percent from 61 percent) significantly as a sophomore, he saw his three-point percentage drop to 21 percent (from 26 percent).

If Austin can become a more reliable perimeter threat then he would be a really tough cover during his final years of college.
