Clark Atlanta University junior guard Jamal Pollydore cited coaching changes as one of the reasons he will be trasferring from the Panthers program to Glenville State College, a Division II program in West Virginia. Pollydore started 26 of the 27 games he played this season, averaging 10.4 points and 2.6 rebounds per game while shooting .442 percent from the field and .411 from three-point.
Pollydore transferred to Clark Atlanta following an All-American career at Niagra Community College (N.Y.). He was part of a recruiting class that former head coach Darrell Walker and assistant coach Alfred Jordan brought to Atlanta. Both coaches have taken similar positions at the University of Arkansas-Little Rock earlier this year.
The Panthers finished the 2017-18 season 24-6 overall with a 16-3 conference record. The Glenville State College Pioneers play in the Mountain East Conference and were 8-21 overall and 6-16 in conference last year. The Pioneers head coach Justin Cladwell will be in his first season with the program this fall.
