It certainly didn’t take long for new head coach Paul Hewitt to fill the open spot on the roster left by Luke Hancock’s departure to Louisville. By now you have probably seen the news that Seton Hall forward Anali Okoloji will be transferring to George Mason. The 6’8″ forward didn’t play much in his freshman season at Seton Hall but was a highly coveted recruit back coming out. You will notice he was listed as a shooting guard on the recruiting sites and has been described as a ‘wing forward’ who can rebound and score inside and out. Although he couldn’t get on the floor at Seton Hall the hope is a change in scenery and a new coaching staff will help bring out his potential.
Okoloji will sit out the 2011-2012 season by NCAA transfer rules and then join the class of Erik Copes, Corey Edwards, and Vaughn Gray in 2012-2013.
