Ex-Maryland big man transfers back to former school
Qudus Wahab is going back to his former school. After a season at Maryland, the 6-11, 240-pound big man has transferred back to Georgetown, where he played the first 2 seasons of his career.
“It’s good to come home to a fanbase and a system that I am familiar and comfortable with,” Wahab said via a Georgetown release. “There will be a lot of new faces on the team and coaching staff that I have built a good relationship with recently, which makes this transition easier. I am excited to play with and work with my new Hoya team. I think coming back to the Hilltop will prepare me even more for my ultimate goal of playing in the NBA.”
With the Terrapins, Wahab played in 32 games, making 31 starts. He averaged 7.7 points and 5.6 rebounds per game in 2021-22. He entered the NCAA transfer portal in late March.
“I’m happy to see Qudus Wahab back on the Hilltop. I’m looking forward to him helping us get to where we want to be as a team and for our staff to help in his development and his growth,” Hoyas head coach Patrick Ewing said in a release.
