La Salle big man Ed Croswell announced that he is transferring to Providence.

The 6-foot-8 forward must sit out next season due to NCAA transfer regulations and will have two seasons remaining.

Croswell averaged 10.4 points and 7.6 rebounds in 26 games (25 starts) for La Salle this season. He said during an interview with WPRI of Providence on Monday that he feels he'll be a good fit with the Friars.

"They like going to the rim and being aggressive," Croswell said. "They are a grind-it-out team. I just love watching them play. At the end of the season, I thought they were the hottest team in the nation."

Providence (19-12) won its final six games before the season was canceled due to the coronavirus outbreak.
