6-foot-8 forward Treyvon Andres has received an offer from Loyola, his junior college tweeted Tuesday.

Andres, a sophomore, is averaging 15.7 points, 9.3 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game while shooting 55.8 percent from the field this season at Trinidad State Junior College in Colorado. He would have two more years of eligibility in Division I.

Coming out of high school, Andres was a three-star recruit on ESPN, which also ranked him the No. 40 small forward in the nation. It appears he has transitioned to a power forward role at Trinidad State as the team’s tallest starter and leader in rebounds.

Loyola graduates its best front court player, Montel James, after this season. James is averaging 12.3 points and 6.6 rebounds. The Ramblers return three forwards in 6-foot-9 sophomore Julius Rajala, 6-foot-9 sophomore Maurice Kirby and 6-foot-7 freshman Pernell Adgei.

Rajala has improved since last season but still has plenty of room to develop, averaging 2.3 points in 10 minutes per game. Kirby and Adgei have barely played this year.
