Former Iowa basketball player Brennan Cougill will transfer to Wisconsin-Green Bay, according to the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

Cougill, a 6-9, 255-pound forward, averaged 4 points and 3 rebounds for the Hawkeyes during the 2009-10 campaign. He transferred to Kirkwood Community College after becoming academically ineligible for the 2010-11 season.

The 20-year-old was Kirkwood's leading scorer this past year (14.4 points per game) and helped lead the Eagles to a 32-5 record.

The Sioux City native scored 1,602 points and pulled down 1,033 rebounds at Bishop Heelan High School, and he was named Iowa's Mr. Basketball after his senior season.

Cougill will join a Phoenix squad that went 14-18 last season, including an 8-10 mark in the Horizon League.

"I think I can bring some size down low," Cougill told Rob Demovsky of the Press-Gazette. "The coaches talked about wanting guys who wouldn't get backed down in the post and would add defense down there."
