Former Georgetown Center Moses Ayegba is coming to spend his final year of eligibility at The Vault. You can thank Kenya Hunter for that. Ayegba, a 6-foot-9 forward/center, provides Nebrasketball with what head coach Tim Miles loves and needs to win in the Big Ten: defensive capability.
He missed all of 2011-12 season due to a torn ACL and wasn’t terribly productive while a member of the Hoyas (1.6 ppg, 2.5 rpg at Georgetown). That said, Miles already has evidence that he can mold lackluster output elsewhere into Nebrasketball magic (I’m looking at you, Terran Petteway).
Just how much did Hunter’s role play in Ayegba’s decision?
“It played a lot, because knowing that you have somebody there just makes you feel more comfortable with everything. Him being there played a big part.” (CollegeBasketballTalk.com)
His addition may help out Miles’ future Nebrasketball squads down the road. Incoming center recruit Jacob Hammond could take a year to build strength and hone his skills before seeing live action.
One thing’s for sure: there’s no downside to this former high school top 100 player’s new one-year plan.
