Tolksdorf Says Goodbye to UConn

STORRS, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) _ Sophomore forward Leon Tolksdorf (Berlin, Germany) has decided to transfer from UConn and will continue his education and college basketball career at American University in Washington, D.C.

“Leon did everything we asked him to do at UConn, on the court and in the classroom,” Coach Kevin Ollie said. “He came to practice every day ready to work hard and push his teammates to improve. He was a big part of our winning the national championship. We wish him the best of luck as he moves on.”

“I have enjoyed two unforgettable years at UConn and I am proud to have been part of the Husky family,” Tolksdorf said. “I never thought I would call Storrs a second home, but being at UConn and knowing my teammates has had a huge impact on me. At the same time, I am also excited to accept this new challenge in my life.”

Tolksdorf, a 6-8 forward, appeared in 24 games for UConn, averaging 1.5 points and 0.8 rebounds in 5.3 minutes per game.
