Big UNLV Transfer Visiting Texas Tech This Weekend
Texas Tech Basketball is in the hunt for more talent and one option is on campus this weekend as Carlos Silva from lubbockonline.com confirms:
When you talk about big recruits it's sometimes a double entendre and that's the case with Joel Ntambwe who is big in profile and size. The 6'9" former UNLV Runnin' Rebel has entered the transfer portal and the NBA draft. If he chooses to stay in the NCAA he'd have to submit a waiver to be immediately eligible which would have a good shot at passing because of the coaching change at UNLV this offseason.
As a true freshman with UNLV Ntambwe averaged 12 points and 6 rebounds starting all 31 games with the Runnin' Rebels. He also shot 38% from beyond the arc shooting 114 threes in 24 minutes per game.
The NCAA early entrant withdrawal deadline comes this week on Wednesday, May 29th, so Ntambwe will need to first make that decision before deciding on his next school that may very well be Texas Tech.
If you see Chris Beard riding scooters through the rain and puddles this weekend don't worry, he's just leading Joel around on a tour.
