Just days after Marquette landed a transfer, the Big East is back at it. This time, it was Creighton!

Syracuse guard Kaleb Joseph will be joining the Bluejays, per ESPN's Jeff Goodman.

The Bluejays are no strangers to transfers, having landed Maurice Watson, Marcus Foster, and Cole Huff in the last two years alone.

Joseph started 30 of Syracuse's 31 games in 2014-15, his freshman season. He averaged 5.9 points and 3.8 assists per game

Then, this season, he lost his starting job to Michael Gbinije, and saw the court very rarely, playing just 114 minutes over 14 games. Just 18 of those minutes came in ACC play.

Per NCAA regulations, Joseph will sit out for the 2016-17 season, and then will have two years of eligibility remaining starting in 2017-18.
