    Iona transfer forward Sultan Adewale has committed to Albany, he told ZAGSBLOG.

    The 6-foot-8, 220-pound forward from London started in 15 of 33 games as a freshman at Iona and averaged 3.0 points and 3.2 rebounds. He looks to have a bigger role under Coach Dwayne Killings as the first piece in what is expected to be several new additions.

    “The coaches had faith in me and I can come in and be an impact guy right away,” he said. “Coach Killings showed true interest from Day 1 and it’s still relatively close to home.

    “I can bring versatility in so many ways. I can drive, finish around the rim and I’m an excellent rebounder and I can still shoot with me having confidence.”

    Adewale, who played at Newmann-Goretti (PA), chose Iona last May over Buffalo and Wichita State.
