VCU graduate transfer forward Ahmed Hamdy has committed to TCU. The 6-foot-9 senior will be immediately able to play for the NIT Champions.

A native of Egypt, Hamdy averaged 5.9 points and 3.8 rebounds a game in 34 contests - averaging 13.2 minutes a contest.
While he won't be expected to start, the experienced senior should provide quality minutes to a frontcourt who loses Chris Washburn and Karvair Shepherd to graduation. The two combined for 6.8 points and 3.9 rebounds a game, averaging a combined 18 minutes a contest. The move by TCU to sign Hamdy should allow head coach Jamie Dixon to bring four-star center Kevin Samuel along slowly.
