San Diego State landed one of the top players remaining on the transfer market.

Malachi Flynn, a 6-foot-1 transfer from Washington State, pledged Monday to the Aztecs, giving coach Brian Dutcher a high-scoring guard with two years of eligibility remaining.

“After much prayer and thoughtful consideration, I am blessed and thankful to announce that I will be transferring to San Diego State University to further my education and basketball career,” Flynn wrote on social media. “I want to thank every school and coach that recruited and showed interest in me during this process and each of you that supported me during this transition as well,

“I’m excited for this next chapter and look forward to being a part of the Aztec family.”

Flynn averaged 15.8 points while shooting 41.3 percent from the floor and 33.8 percent from 3-point range. He also posted 4.3 assists and 3.4 rebounds per game for the Cougars. Flynn will have to sit out the 2018-19 season under NCAA transfer rules, but then will have two seasons left to compete. He picked the Aztecs over the likes of Creighton, Baylor and Gonzaga.
