With three players testing the NBA waters this offseason, Nevada has a little roster uncertainty. The Wolf Pack added a player Monday to help mitigate that.

Ehab Amin, a 6-foot-4 graduate transfer from Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, has signed with coach Eric Musselman’s program, the school announced.

“We are extremely excited about the addition of Ehab to our program,” Musselman said in a statement. “He was a first-team all-conference player and has shown the ability to score, rebound, and excels at creating extra possessions with loose balls and steals.

“He is an elite defender and can play multiple positions, anywhere from point guard to the power forward. He plays with such great energy and effort and has a big-time motor. Ehab is also an excellent student with great leadership qualities.”

Amin sat out last season due to a hip injury, but averaged 16.9 points and 6.6 rebounds per game as a junior in 2016-17. He becomes the second grad transfer for Musselman this offseason as Old Dominion center Trey Porter pledged to the Wolf Pack last month.

“I really felt at home around my future teammates and the coaching staff,” Amin wrote on social media, “and couldn’t find a better coach to play for than coach Musselman. I’m confident this will be a great year for me and for Nevada.”

Nevada will now await the decision of Jordan Caroline, Caleb Martin and Cody Martin, all three of whom declared for the NBA draft but have not hired agents. Cody and Caleb Martin both received invitations to next week’s NBA draft combine. The Wolf Pack are ranked eighth in our preseason top-25.
