Texas A&M lands transfer Josh Nebo


Texas A&M continues a notable offseason with the addition of a sought-after low-major transfer.

St. Francis (PA) sophomore forward Josh Nebo has committed to the Aggies, according to a report on Thursday night from Evan Daniels of Scout. The 6-foot-8 Nebo is a native of Houston. He had announced his decision to transfer out of the program on March 22.

He averaged 12.3 points and 8.0 rebounds per game for the Red Flash. His 2.6 blocks a contest ranked him top-10 nationally. Nebo arrives in College Station with 143 career blocks under his belt.

Nebo joins Marquette’s Duane Wilson as newcomers to the program via transfer. Wilson will graduate this spring, meaning he will be eligible to play during the 2017-18 season. Nebo will have to sit out due to NCAA transfer rules. He will have two years of eligibility remaining.

He will play an important role on the scout team for the Aggies, one that should benefit him at the start of the 2018-19 campaign. With projected lottery pick Robert Williams electing to return for a sophomore season, Nebo will go head-to-head with an NBA-caliber forward every day in practice.

The Aggies ended last season with a 16-15 (8-10 SEC) record.
