Akoy Agau has had quite the ride through college basketball. He began his career with two years at Louisville, but has played at two schools since. It looks like he's set to finish up where he started.

Agau played sparingly for the Cardinals in 2013-2014, and the beginning of the 2014-15 season. As a freshman, he scored under one point per game, and didn't not score during his second collegiate season.

That December, he elected to transfer. Agau headed to Georgetown, where he scored 4.5 points per game in 15 minutes for the Hoyas. The following season, he played at SMU, averaging five points per game in 16.1 minutes.

Because Agau only played in three games during his final year at Louisville, he appears to have another year of eligibility. Coincidentally, he will reportedly use it at... Louisville

According to 247Sports' Evan Daniels, he will finish his career back with the Louisville Cardinals.

At 6-foot-8, 235 pounds, he should provide solid frontcourt depth for the Cardinals. He also probably knows campus better than new head coach Chris Mack, so no informational tours necessary.

Agau finished his bachelor's in English and anthropology at Georgetown. At SMU, he worked on a master's in science and management. You can't accuse Akau of not getting the most out of his college time.

The Sudan native grew up in Omaha, Nebraska. He was originally a four-star recruit when he first enrolled at U of L.
