Former North Dakota State Bison guard Khy Kabellis has committed to Pacific, a source told FanRag Sports. Kabellis spent the last two seasons at North Dakota State, ultimately electing to transfer away from the Bison following his sophomore campaign.

Although now slated to join the Tigers on the West Coast, Kabellis will first be forced to sit out for the upcoming 2017-18 season due to NCAA transfer regulations.

As a freshman for the Bison back in 2015-16, the up-and-coming guard averaged 8.7 points over the course of 30.4 minutes per game. Shooting just under 41 percent from the field, he also managed to register 3.1 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 0.7 steals per outing during his first go-round at the collegiate level.

Upping the ante as a sophomore in 2016-17, Kabellis averaged 11.2 points over the course of 33.2 minutes per game. While shooting a little more than 40 percent from the field this past season, he added 2.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.1 steals per outing as well.

However, while tacking on more minutes, Kabellis also turned the basketball over at a higher rate — 1.5 times per game as a freshman and 2.4 times as a sophomore.
