LOGAN – A former Aggie basketball player was planning on returning to Utah State for his senior season, but it seems plans have changed. The 7-foot center was on USU’s roster in 2013, but transferred before his freshman season started.

After spending the last three years at the University of North Dakota, Shanks announced via Twitter on March 31 that he was planning on rejoining the Aggies.

“Couldn’t be more excited to announce that I will be returning to Logan, Utah to play my 5th and final year back at Utah State University!” he wrote.

Now, Shanks appears to be headed in a different direction. A Friday tweet from the Loyola University Chicago basketball team announced Shanks as an addition to the Loyola roster. Shanks retweeted the announcement adding that it is “Crazy how some things happen.”

“I could not be more excited to spend my last season playing ball at Loyola University-Chicago” he wrote.
