Garrick Sherman Transferring To Notre Dame

Ex-Michigan State center Garrick Sherman announced last month that he was planning to transfer. Now, he has decided on a new school: Notre Dame.

Coming out of high school, Sherman picked MSU over Notre Dame. After spending two years at MSU, he is now headed to South Bend, and he is excited about getting another chance to play for the Fighting Irish.

"I'm pumped," Sherman said by phone from East Lansing, where he is finishing up his final semester at Michigan State. "I'm excited for the second chance to come to Notre Dame. Everything just fit."

Sherman was intrigued by Notre Dame's run of transfer success stories dating back to eventual NBA first-round draft pick Ryan Humphrey and continuing last winter. Following two seasons at Mississippi State, former Irish guard Ben Hansbrough jumped from a Southeastern Conference afterthought to Big East player of the year. Scott Martin, who hosted Sherman during his visit, also enjoyed a solid year in his first season at Notre Dame after transferring from Purdue.

Sherman will sit out the 2011-12 season and be eligible to play for the 2012-13 campaign.
