Akoy Agau saw an increase in playing time at Georgetown during the 2016-17 season.
Now Agau has a graduate year and will be transferring from the Hoyas. He may not be going too far because Maryland is in the running for his services.
According to Jon Rothstein of CBSSports, Agau is considering the likes of Cal State Northridge, Illinois, Old Dominion, SMU, and Washington State for his graduate year.
Agau spent the first two seasons of his college career at Louisville. He played sparingly throughout that time as his highest minute total was 5.0 per contest as a freshman.
After he played just 3.7 minutes-per-game as a sophomore, Agau decided to transfer and ended up at Georgetown.
Agau did receive a lot more playing time with the Hoyas. During the 2016-17 season, the Nebraska native averaged 4.5 points and 4.3 rebounds in 15.0 minutes per contest.
He also averaged nearly a block per game while playing in the District.
One of the areas of his game that improved immensely was his free throw shooting. Agau was shot an 85.1 percent clip from the charity stripe after making just three of his 10 free throw attempts while with the Cardinals.
Agau would be a welcome addition to the Maryland frontcourt.
The Terps lost center Damonte Dodd to graduation and Michal Cekovsky is coming off a season in which he only played 17 games due to injury this past season. Ivan Bender will also be back, but the addition of Agau would give coach Mark Turgeon a rather large luxury.
Maryland wouldn’t be forced to play freshman Bruno Fernando a ton. Fernando could be eased into the rotation and Agau would most likely play 15-20 minutes a game.
While there is no frontrunner in Agau’s recruitment, the situation at Maryland and familiarity with the area have to be viewed as positives.
