Ex-Louisville forward Akoy Agau commits to Georgetown

Wednesday January 7th, 2015

Former Louisville forward Akoy Agau has committed to Georgetown, according to a report from NebraskaHSHoops.com.

"I have chosen to commit to Georgetown University," Agau told the website. "Georgetown is the best place for me both athletically and academically. The program has a history of developing big men to maximize their potential and I feel it's the best place for me right now. I look forward to continuing my basketball career as a Hoya."

Cardinals coach Rick Pitino announced last month that Agau had left the program and planned to transfer. Pitino reportedly said Agau, a former four-star recruit, left mainly because he wanted more playing time. 

Over three games with the Cardinals this season, Agau scored zero points and recorded one rebound in 11 minutes. Agau missed time prior to the start of this season while recovering from sports hernia surgery.

Two of the Hoyas' top frontcourt players, Josh Smith and Mikael Hopkins, are seniors.
