PUEBLO, Colo. (June 7, 2018) - Colorado State University-Pueblo Director of Golf Josh Koschke has added transfer Matthew McCulloch to the 2018-19 roster from Oakland University.
"Matthew adds a dynamic we have yet to have during my 10 years of coaching at CSU-Pueblo," Koschke said. "As a Division I transfer from Oakland University, he brings a massive amount of talent and experience playing high-level competitive college golf. He obviously was a top recruit out of high school and looks to start fresh at CSU-Pueblo to help us advance past the NCAA Regional. He will have the ability to immediately help replace Neil Tillman, our lone graduating senior and anchor in the lineup for the last four years."
