Three players to transfer from Mississippi State

Mississippi State has granted the transfers of three sophomores, twin guards Reginald and Richard Delk and forward Bernard Rimmer.

Reginald Delk, the most productive of the three, could wind up following family history and playing for Louisville coach Rick Pitino.

The Delks' uncle, Tony, was a star on Pitino's 1996 national championship team at Kentucky and a longtime NBA player.

Reginald Delk averaged 9.5 points per game last season for the Bulldogs, and his 3-point shooting stroke would be a solid fit with Pitino's offense.

As of Monday afternoon, Louisville had not sought official permission from Mississippi State to speak to Reginald Delk, according to Bulldogs sports information contact David Rosinski.
