Joey Van Zegeren will transfer to Northwestern to complete his college basketball career, NBCSports.com has confirmed through a source.

Van Zegeren is a 6-foot-10 forward from the Netherlands. He was averaging 9.8 points and 5.3 boards for Virginia Tech this season, but left the team after he was suspended four games for a reported incident in practice.

Van Zegeren is a graduate transfer, meaning that he will be eligible to play immediately next season. It’s an addition that Chris Collins desperately needed, as the Wildcats lack veteran depth in their front court.

The news was first reported by ESPN.com.
