Alabama junior center Moussa Gueye will transfer for his final season of basketball, Crimson Tide Coach Anthony Grant announced on Tuesday.



Moussa Gueye earned his undergraduate degree in human environmental science in December and will walk with his graduating class this May. Under NCAA guidelines, he will be eligible to play next season as a graduate transfer student.

“We’re proud of Moussa for completing his degree in two years and for his efforts and contributions to our basketball program,” Alabama Coach Anthony Grant said. “Moussa has decided to pursue other options for his final year of eligibility and will seek to transfer to another institution. We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.”

“I really enjoyed my time at Alabama,” Gueye said. “People have been very supportive during my two years here. Since I have my degree, I just decided I wanted to leave and try and continue to get better. I love my coaches and teammates – they helped me get better. I have nothing but great memories here and I am grateful for my decision to come to the University of Alabama.”

Gueye played in all 36 contests this past season for the Crimson Tide, making 27 starts. He led the team with 52 blocked shots and averaged 1.4 points, 3.9 rebounds and 15.4 minutes per game.
