Nebraska Basketball: Georgetown's Moses Ayegba Transfers to Nebrasketball


6'9" 247 pound center Moses Ayegba announced this evening that he's transferring to Nebraska upon his graduation from Georgetown at the end of the spring semester. As a graduate, he's eligible to play immediately as he has one year of eligibility remaining.

In his junior season at Georgetown, Ayegba averaged 1.9 points, 2.8 rebounds, and .7 blocks in just over 13 minutes per game, according to SB Nation's Casual Hoya. No doubt Kenya Hunter, who arrived in Lincoln last summer from Georgetown, played a huge role in Ayegba's decision to pick Nebraska. The Lincoln Journal-Star reports that Indiana, Boston College, Miami, and Long Beach State also pursued Ayegba, once his decision to transfer was made. A native of Kano, Nigeria, Ayegba was pursued out of high school by Texas, Kentucky, Florida, UCLA, Connecticut, Tennessee and Indiana before deciding on Georgetown.

While known for getting in foul trouble at  Georgetown, he did have this memorable block in a game in 2013 in a game at Syracuse.
