Omer Yurtseven Transfers to Georgetown

Omer Yurtseven Transfers to Georgetown

Color me confused.

When former NC State big fella Omer Yurtseven asked for his release, I heard from sources that he was 99.5% going pro, and that this transfer thing was extremely unlikely.

Welp. Sometimes unlikely things happen.

Yurtseven is transferring to Georgetown.

The Turkish center will sit out one year, and then have two years of remaining eligibility.

From my understanding, Yurt had a great relationship with NC State head coach Kevin Keatts.

I chalk this up to two things.

1) Keatts wants to fully implement his system next year. That system isn’t well-suited for a big who doesn’t run the court extremely well, and prefers to play with his back to the basket.

2) Yurtseven wants to play for Patrick Ewing, who will run a system that suits his game.
