Guard Cleon Roberts is transferring to La Salle University after starting all 32 games and averaging 8.5 points per game as a freshman at Georgia Southern.
"Cleon gives us an athletic, scoring guard with excellent size," head basketball coach Dr. John Giannini said in a statement. "He has a great deal of potential which I am confident he will reach because of his excellent work ethic. We are especially excited about his defensive potential with his length and quickness."
Roberts can play during the 2014-15 season. Per NCAA transfer regulations, he must sit out a year.
Roberts' uncle, William Roberts, played 14 seasons with the New York Giants. He appeared in three Super Bowls, winning two of them.
