Former Robert Morris forward Koby Thomas has transferred to Coppin State, according to the university’s athletics website.

Coppin State reports the 6-foot-6 junior is on scholarship. Under NCAA guidelines, Thomas will have to sit out one year.

Coppin State, located in Baltimore, Md., was 8-25 in 2018-19. It is a member of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.

Thomas played in only 20 of 35 games in 2018-19, made one start and averaged 7.3 points. He started in all 33 games his freshman season and averaged 12 points and 6.9 rebounds. He began his career with a 22-point effort against Ohio State.

He follows a long list of star players to transfer away from Robert Morris after two seasons.

The list includes: Dachon Burke (to Nebraska after the 2018 season), Isaiah Still (to Iona in 2017), Elijah Minnie (to Eastern Michigan in 2016) and Rodney Pryor (to Georgetown in 2016) and Marquise Reed (to Clemson in 2015). Chris Coalmon also entered his name in the transfer portal in April.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
