(CNN Phillipines, May 9) — After a season with the Creighton Bluejays, Filipino college basketball prospect Kobe Paras has decided to make the move to NCAA Division I school Cal State Northridge.

Paras revealed his latest move in a Skype interview with select media outlets on Tuesday morning.

"I have been talking to my dad, my family, to mama Nia, and coach Middlebrooks about this," the young cager explained. "I would like to take my talents to Cal State Northridge just because I think that Cal State Northridge is the best fit for me."


For Creighton last season, Paras played in 15 games and averaged only 4.7 minutes per game.

According to Paras, the lack of playing time was one of the key reasons why he decided to leave Omaha.

"Coming into my freshman year, my mindset was I was going to play as a freshman," Paras admitted. "It just sucked that this year I didn't get the minutes that I wanted."

The Cal State Northridge Matadors play in the Big West Conference and finished their most recent men's basketball season with an 11-19 win-loss record.

Paras could help the Matadors improve on that record after sitting out one year, but will still have three more years of eligibility afterwards.

The Matadors are led by former NBA player Reggie Theus.
