Transfer commits to men’s basketball

Former Charleston Southern guard Armel Potter has committed to transfer to GW, according to a tweet by ESPN’s Jeff Goodman Thursday.

The Marietta, Ga. native will have to sit for a year, in accordance with NCAA transfer rules before having two more years of eligibility remaining.

Potter was awarded All-Freshman team honors in the Big South after his standout rookie year. In his 2016-17 campaign, his scoring numbers dropped slightly but his shooting percentage went up 6.2 points while he played a team-high 31.6 minutes per game.

Over the past two seasons, the Colonials have had success with transfers who have been forced to sit including graduate student Tyler Cavanaugh, redshirt senior Matt Hart and redshirt junior Jaren Sina.

Potter will be the fourth player to sign with GW under head coach Maurice Joseph, including incoming freshmen Justin Mazzulla, Maceo Jack and Terry Nolan Jr. The Colonials have three scholarships still available.
