In his freshman season, Izundu was second on the team with 22 blocks in 20 games. But last year saw him play in only four games and he stopped traveling with the team after Dec. 14, the Houston Chronicle reported.
Izundu was seen as promising, but a project, coming out of Lamar Consolidated High in Texas.
Houston, though, was never a good fit it appears. Izundu had previously asked to transfer and was granted his release after his first season at UH before changing his mind and rejoining the team.
The conditions of Izundu's transfer reportedly were that he could not transfer to any school in the American Athletics Conference or any school on UH's schedule for the 2014-15 academic year.
Izundu will need to sit out this season per NCAA transfer rules. He will then have two-to-play-two for Washington State.
Kent told CF.C in June his intent for using the last '14 scholarship would be on a player who has size and can help the Cougars down low in the post. The problem, Kent said, was there were not a lot of big men left in the 2014 recruiting class, which meant he would likely hold onto it and use it on a big man in the 2015 crop.
Izundu joins power forward Jeff Pollard as known 2015 commits in WSU's class.
