Dwayne Polee II
Dwayne Polee II is a 6’7” guard who transferred from St. John's. A Los Angeles native, Polee played in all 33 games during the 2010-2011 season for St John's, starting 27. He averaged 15 minutes and 4.4 points during the year and saw his playing time increase throughout conference play. Polee is tall, for a guard, but is very comfortable handling the ball.
Roderick Rowan, a red shirt walk-on sitting out due to NCAA rules, said this about Polee: “This guy is pure talent. He is by far the most athletic player on the team if not in the country. He has a knack for the game and plays hard all the time. It’s not too bad when you have a 6’7” guard who can shoot and handle the ball.”
Polee used his redshirt season last year and has been practicing with SDSU since he transferred. He will be used in the rotation but will have difficulty working his way into the starting lineup, as the Aztec’s have a talented front court returning from last season. SDSU returns key contributing guards Xavier Thames, Chase Tapley, James Rahon, and Jamaal Franklin.
