Brandan Kearney, a former Detroit Southeastern star, is headed back home. Kearney, a 6-5 guard/forward, has transferred to the University of Detroit from Arizona State. Kearney spent a year and a half at Michigan State before transferring to ASU.

U-D has a lot of good things to offer, Kearney said. A lot of people dont know how good it is until you look inside. Im looking forward to coming back home.

Kearney was selected to the Detroit News Class A all-state team in 2011 and signed with MSU. He left MSU after the first semester of the 2012-13 academic year and enrolled at ASU. Kearney played in 19 games at ASU this past season.

Kearney will sit out the upcoming season because of NCAA transfer rules and wont be eligible until the 2015-16 season at Detroit. He has one season of eligibility remaining.

Kearney played 47 games at MSU and averaged 1.5 points and one rebound per game.
