MANKATO — The Minnesota State men's basketball team was already getting one transfer from a Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference program.
Now, there's two.
Freshman Brady Wohler said Sunday that he will leave Minnesota State-Moorhead and transfer to Minnesota State this fall. Because he's transferring within the league, the 6-foot-4 guard have to sit out next season.
"It will be tough not to play, but that's another year that you can get stronger and get accustomed to the system and work on your game," Wohler said. "It will be challenging, but it will be good."
Earlier this month, sophomore Michael Emge announced he will transfer to Minnesota State from Northern State.
Wohler, the son of Orono coach Barry Wohler, played in 29 games last season, starting 13. He averaged 3.9 points and 2.0 rebounds, shooting 44.4 percent from the field, 29.0 percent on 3-pointers and 68.6 percent from the free-throw line.
"I was homesick and wanted to be closer to home," Wohler said. "I have family in Mankato, and I like the basketball program. I never really felt comfortable at Moorhead."
Wohler has a brother, Cassidy Feaver, who works in Mankato. His cousin, Ross Miller, is on the Minnesota State golf team.
Wohler said he visited Concordia-St. Paul before deciding on Minnesota State. He plays a wing position, though he said he could play some point guard if necessary.
"I have a winning attitude, and I like to play hard on every possession," he said. "I want to bring a positive attitude, and hopefully, we can win a lot of games."
