George Tandy - 21
George Tandy is ready for his senior year. After returning to the floor a year ago following his transfer from Eastern Illinois, it took the Indianapolis native a little time to get adjusted to the Gary Waters system. A long and athletic post player, he gives the Vikings a shot-blocking and rebounding defensive presence that helps to solidify the CSU interior. He will be counted on to improve on his scoring and rebounding in his final year and help to open up the inside for his teammates.
