Former Zag Mangisto Arop could end up playing basketball for none other than Washington State, according to a published report from Indiana. That is, if he doesn't become a Sycamore first.

Indiana TV station WTHI said Thursday Arop paid a visit to Indiana State this week and that he is interested in the school. But the report also said other schools interested in Arop include Valparaiso, Montana, Cal Poly and Washington State.

A spokesman for Washington State said Thursday they "could not comment on recruitable student-athletes".

Because of the NCAA's transfer rules, Arop would have to sit out one season if he decides to transfer to another Division I program.

The 6-foot-6 sophomore from Canada decided to leave Gonzaga this spring in hopes of finding a place that would give him more playing time. Arop played in 28 games for the Zags last season, but watched as his playing time diminished as the season dragged on. He didn't play in six of Gonzaga's last 10 games.
