As A Freshman/Prior To St. Bonaventure
Was not allowed to play in games during the 2012-13 season and used a year of eligibility due to the NCAA’s “delayed enrollment” ruling ... since more than a year passed between his high school graduation date and his enrollment at St. Bonaventure, the NCAA mandated that he “sit the year in residency” before becoming eligible ... graduated from high school in the spring of 2010 and took a year off from schooling and basketball competition before enrolling at Spain’s Canarias Basketball Academy (CBA) in the fall of 2011 ... played in 22 games at CBA during the 2011-12 season ... that competition – combined with the “delayed enrollment” – caused him to lose a year of eligibility ... took classes at St. Bonaventure during the entire 2012-13 year ... was allowed to participate in team workouts and practices in 2012-13, but could play in games or travel with the team to away contests ... will have three years of playing eligibility beginning as a sophomore in the 2013-14 season.

Outlook
Will look to fill a void in the frontcourt left by the graduations of Atlantic 10 Player of the Year Andrew Nicholson and Da'Quan Cook .... part of the Bonnies 2012 recruiting class that also includes G/F Jean Yves Toupane and G/F Dion Wright.

At Canarias Basketball Academy
Spent the 2011-2012 year at CBA in Spain's Canary Islands, the premiere prep school in Europe that also produced St. Bonaventure junior Charlon Kloof ... played in 22 games while participating in tournaments in New York, New Jersey and Rhode Island with CBA.
