South Florida adds NBA legacy PG Mike Bibby Jr. for ’16

6′-2″ point guard Mike Bibby Jr., was named as a late addition to the 2016-2017 roster at South Florida on Friday. The addition of Bibby Jr. would seem to give the Bulls thirteen scholarship players (the maximum amount) as they continue their rebuilding effort.

The Player of the Year in Arizona, Bibby Jr. averaged 19.3 points, 5 assists, 4 rebounds and almost 3 steals as a senior, according to AZCentral.com.

Bibby Jr. headed into July without a college destination, and caught some eyes with his performance for the Utah Basketball Club.

In looking at a South Florida roster, the Bulls could certainly use a pure point guard to add to their 8 win team. They have improved athleticism, shooting and scoring from last year’s team, but not a distributor at point guard.

If Bibby Jr. can overcome his late start in the program, he could find a role on the squad, and make schools that passed on him to allow him to go to South Florida regretting their decision.
