FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Former VCU forward Ahmed Hamdy is going to TCU, where he will be immediately eligible to play next season as a graduate transfer.
TCU coach Jamie Dixon announced Hamdy’s signing Tuesday. Dixon says the 6-foot-9, 240-pound Hamdy is a big man who runs the floor well and can score in the post.
Hamdy, a native of Egypt, spent the past two seasons at VCU. Hamdy averaged 5.9 points and 3.8 rebounds last season.
Before going to VCU, he played as a freshman at Lee College, a community college in Texas.
Hamdy is the sixth newcomer set to join the Horned Frogs in the fall after they won the NIT championship in Dixon’s first season.
