Former Arizona Wildcat forward Angelo Chol has chosen to transfer to San Diego State, according to his high school coach, Ollie Goulston.

San Diego was an adopted hometown for the native of Sudan, who played for Goulston at Hoover High School. Chol chose UA over Washington, North Carolina, Kansas and Alabama in February 2011 but slipped in and out of Arizona's playing rotation as a sophomore last season.

Chol did not speak to any coaches since his decision last week to transfer, Goulston said, but Goulston said 48 schools called him -- including Billy Donovan of Florida and Jamie Dixon of Pitt.

"He just wanted to look first at that (SDSU) situation when he came back and he did that," Goulston said. "He was comfortable."

Chol will sit out the required redshirt season of transfers next season and have two years remaining to play in 2014-15. 

While Chol will be sitting out when the Wildcats and Aztecs finish up a home-and-home series next season in San Diego, it is possible he could face his former teammates in 2014-15, when both UA and SDSU are scheduled to play in the Maui Invitational.

Mark Zeigler of the San Diego Union-Tribune has more on Chol's move home.
