Teddy Okereafor to transfer to Rider

Sophomore point guard Teddy Okereafor will transfer from Virginia Commonwealth University to Rider next season.

VCU-GW-16

Sophomore point guard Teddy Okereafor will transfer from Virginia Commonwealth University to Rider next season.

A London, England native, Okereafor made his way to VCU through Christchurch School. He was the Rams’ top ranked recruit in the 2011 class, but his minutes and role have been limited during his first two seasons.

His departure opens up even more minutes for junior point guard Briante Weber and freshmen Douglas Brooks, JeQuan Lewis, and Jairus Lyles.

    Can someone tell me about his game?

  3. Aaron Williams on said:

    He is a pass first point guard. He has serious handles and he is a solid defender. He struggled with confidence and momentum this season because his minutes were so inconsistent.

    He made the best play for the Rams in the Michigan-VCU beatdown in Auburn Hills. Four future NBA players were on the break and Okereafor stripped the ball from Nik Stauskus under the basket. Words cannot do the play justice.
