DII All-American is headed to the Big East

Interesting news in the transfer portal, as Ryan Hawkins, a DII All-American who helped lead Northwest Missouri State to a DII title this season, will head to Creighton. The news was announced by the school Tuesday morning.


Hawkins is a 6'7 forward who averaged 22.6 points and 8.8 rebounds per game as a senior, including 31 points and 18 rebounds in the DII national championship game. In the process, he earned All-American honors.


Hawkins should find an immediate role on a Creighton squad which lost all five starters off this year's Sweet 16 squad.
