Former Kansas forward Zuby Ejiofor is transferring to St. John’s University Red Storm Men’s basketball program, today he announced.
A former four-star recruit, the 6-foot-9, 235-pound Ejiofor held offers from the likes of Arkansas, Georgia Tech, Oklahoma, Seton Hall, LSU, Texas, Houston, among others, according to VerbalCommits.com.
“Zuby is a quality athlete, basketball player and person,” head coach Rick Pitino said on RedStormSports.com. “He is an outstanding defensive player who is really going to bolster our front court.”
Ejiofor, a sophomore next year, averaged 1.2 points and 1.7 rebounds in 5.1 minutes of action per contest for the Jayhawks last season. He also shot 65.0 percent from the field and was tied for fifth on the team with 15 blocks.
Ejiofor averaged 21.0 points and 13.0 rebounds at Garland High School in Garland, Texas.
St. John’s posted an 18-15 overall record and went 7-13 in Big East Conference action in the 2022-23 campaign.
