With Arizona scrambling to fill its roster for next season, Texas A&M Corpus Christi graduate transfer Ehab Amin has apparently popped up on Sean Miller’s radar.
ESPN’s Jeff Goodman says Arizona is among a slew of schools to show interest in Amin’s services.

SB Nation highlighted Amin’s attributes:
The 6-foot-4 guard missed the 2017-18 season with a hip injury, but was a mid-major All-American in 2016-17 when he averaged 16.9 points and 6.6 rebounds per game.
The Egyptian was also one of the nation’s leaders in steals, swiping 3.4 per game, and rated as the Islanders’ third-best defender with a defensive box plus/minus of 2.1.
The Islanders were a small team in 2016-17, and Amin had a interesting role in which he split time between power forward and point guard, per KenPom, explaining why his rebounding numbers were so high.
Here’s a profile the Islands published about Amin prior to the start of the 2017-18 season:
