The nation’s leading rebounder is headed to Texas A&M, potentially an importance piece for the Aggies’ building process under coach Buzz Williams.

Kevin Marfo, who averaged 13.3 rebounds to go with 10.2 points this past season as junior at Quinnipiac, made his announcement Saturday afternoon.

A graduate transfer, the 6-8 Marfo will be eligible immediately and should fill a hole up front. A&M loses 6-9 senior Josh Nebo, who averaged 12.5 points and 6.2 rebounds a game.

In a Twitter interview with AllFactsMedia, Marfo pointed to his budding relationship with Williams and what sees as an upswing in the basketball program. A&M finished 16-14 this season and 10-8 in the SEC.

“His resume speaks for itself,” Marfo said of Williams “The way he carries himself, speaks for himself. There’s so much good things I hear about him. He’s my type of guy. He’s somebody I can relate to.”
