Gary Franklin, who quit the Cal team last week just 13 games into his freshman season, has transferred to Baylor, the school reported on its website.
He will sit out the remainder of this season and the fall semester, then become eligible according to NCAA transfer rules.
“Gary has been a winner all of his life,” Baylor coach Scott Drew said. “In high school at Mater Dei, his teams won big and his AAU team, California Supreme, was one of the best in the nation. Players really like to play with him and his sound character along with his talents make him a great fit at Baylor.
“We are extremely excited to have him part of the Baylor family,” Drew said.
