JONESBORO, Ark. (6/9/17) – Arkansas State men's basketball head coach Mike Balado announced today that combo guard Ty Cockfield has signed his grant-in-aid agreement to join the program for the 2017-18 season.
"We are very fortunate to have a player like Ty come join us this summer," Balado said. "After watching him play, I knew right away he would be a perfect fit for our program. His leadership, work ethic, talent and desire to win make him an integral part of our future success."
