Given a second chance, Duquesne landed guard Rene Castro, a freshman who is transferring from Butler.

Castro announced Wednesday he will join the Dukes men's basketball team. The 6-foot-2 guard will sit out the 2014-15 season, then have three years of eligibility remaining.

Castro had Duquesne among his finalists before he picked Butler. The Massachusetts native averaged 3.3 points in 12 games for the Bulldogs.

Duquesne also awaits signed letters of intent from recruits TySean Powell and Eric James.
