Marfo, who measures 6-8, 245 pounds, gives the Aggies’ frontcourt a big boost in 2020-21. He played one season at George Washington and two seasons at Quinnipiac. This past season, Marfo led the NCAA with 13.1 rebounds per game, making it a double-double with an average of 10.1 points per game. Playing an average of 28 minutes per game, Marfo shot 48 percent from the floor and 71 percent at the free-throw line.
“I feel like coach gave me a good opportunity to play and produce this year,” Marfo told 247Sports’ Evan Daniels. “I want to test myself against the best in college basketball. I think this will allow me to get the best opportunity to do that and that’s kind of been my mindset with the reason why I wanted to transfer. I just want to develop my game and see how I match up against the best players in the country.”
