Ehab Amin was a first team All-Southland Conference player in 2016-17. The Texas A&M-Corpus Christi star is now heading elsewhere.

Amin missed the 2017-18 season due to injury. He played the previous three seasons for the Islanders, putting together an excellent junior season.

In 2016-17, Amin led the entire country in steals. He turned opposing teams over a crazy 3.44 times per game.

The native Egyptian was also second on the team in scoring, at 16.9 points per game, and rebounds, with 6.6. He led the team with 2.9 assists per game.

Ehab Amin took to Twitter to announce his transfer.

Amin grew up in Alexandria, Egypt. He moved to the United State to pursue his basketball career after graduating from Riada American School in Alexandria in 2013.

While playing club basketball in Egypt, Amin was considered one of the best shooters in Africa. That part of his game hasn't really translated to the college game as of yet, though he was still an effective scorer for the Islanders.

He played prep school ball at St. John’s Military Academy in Wisconsin. He is also a member of the Egyptian National Team.

At 6-foot-4, 200 pounds, Amin has solid size at the guard position. It will be interesting to see if a power conference club takes a flier on him.

The graduate transfer market is full as ever this off-season. Amin adds another former all-conference star to the list.
