Men’s basketball officially added sophomore transfer Chris Sodom to its 2018-19 roster, head coach Maurice Joseph announced in a release Wednesday.
The center joins GW with three years of eligibility remaining after appearing in six games at Georgetown last season before getting dismissed from the program in December. In 27 total minutes of play he averaged 0.7 points and 1.3 rebounds per game.
At 7 feet 3 inches, Sodom will be the tallest rostered player for the Colonials, standing six inches over the next largest player.
“We are thrilled with the addition of Chris to our program,” Joseph said in the release. “At 7-foot-3, Chris brings elite rim protection to our team. His size, length and mobility will make him a tremendous addition to our front court.”
Sodom, a native of Nigeria, came out of his final year of high school at Tennessee Prep Academy in Memphis, Tenn. with a four-star ranking by ESPN.
In addition to Sodom, the Colonials are set to return eight players from last season’s active roster and add three rookies this season. Senior guards Armel Potter and DJ Williams will also be eligible to play after sitting out last season per NCAA transfer rules. GW still has one remaining scholarship open for the 2018-19 season.
