Agau averaged 4.5 points and 4.3 rebounds per game last season at Georgetown. He missed the 2015-16 season with a torn ACL. Before he was at Georgetown, Agau played at Louisville, where he signed out of high school.
With Sterling Brown, Semi Ojeleye and Ben Moore leaving, the Mustangs needed a frontcourt player who could step in and play immediately, and they found one in Agau. The 6’8”, 235-pound forward will be eligible for the 2017-18 season. He is also currently applying for a sixth year of eligibility, which will allow him to play in the 2018-19 season as well.
Agau picked SMU over a host of schools, including Washington State, Illinois, Cal State Northridge, Maryland and Old Dominion.
Agau joins former Duquense forward Isaiah Mike as the second transfer nabbed by SMU this spring.
