Basketball is well into the off-season but as we all know, the news never really stops. At the moment, many former college standouts are completing contracts with professional teams all over the world. The Atlantic Sun is no exception. We breakdown who is going where.
Langston Hall (Mercer): After spending both the Orlando and Las Vegas summer leagues with the Miami Heat and recording seven assists against Houston on July 12, Hall signed with Giorgio Tesi Pistoia of Italy's top division. Hall will be joined by Seton Hall's Fuquan Edwin. The two met in November when Hall's Bears took down the Pirates but after a workout together with the Kings, the two will be reunited, this time as teammates.

Torrey Craig (USC Upstate): The ex-Spartans star, who averaged 16.7 ppg in his senior season, inked a deal with Cairns Taipans of the Australian National Basketball League. Craig recently concluded a series of dominant performances at the South Carolina Pro Am, landing him on the 2nd Team All Pro Am.

Travis Wallace (North Florida): One of only four players in program history to record 1,000 points and 500 rebounds, Wallace completed a deal with BK Iskra Svit of the Slovakia-Extraliga (1st league). Svit took home last season's Slovakian Cup, and the UNF star is sure to be a welcomed addition.

Numerous other A-Sun players have yet to sign contracts. Be sure to keep an eye on Mercer's Daniel Coursey and FGCU's Chase Fieler.
