COLLEGE STATION, Texas — The Texas A&M Aggies men’s basketball program announced the addition of Josh Nebo Wednesday, who previously spent two seasons with the St. Francis [PA] Red Flash.
The Northeast Conference Defensive Player of the Year set a single-season school record with 89 blocked shots. He also became the school’s leader in career blocked shots with 144 in two seasons.
Nebo started 31 games during the Red Flash’s 34-game season in 2016-17. He averaged 12.0 points and 8.2 rebounds per game. He also posted nine double-doubles. During the conference tournament, Nebo also averaged 10.7 points, 10.0 rebounds, and 5.3 blocks per game to earn a spot on the All-Tournament team.
Aggies head coach Bill Kennedy was pleased to add the Houston Cypress Lakes product.
“I am really excited to add Josh to our program,” Texas A&M head coach Billy Kennedy said. “He has made himself into a good player and is a dominant defensive presence whose ability to block shots will help us right away. Sitting out a year and working with our staff against our front court will prepare him to make an impact in the 2018-19 season.”
Nebo will sit out the 2017-18 season but will debut for the Aggies in the 2018-19 season with two years of eligibility remaining.
