HOUSTON - Trent Internationale post Ahmed Hamdy became the newest member of the University of Houston Men's Basketball program with his signing of a financial aid agreement, head coach James Dickey announced Thursday.

Hamdy, who will be a freshman with the Cougars in 2013-14, was an award-winning post player for coach Eugene Harris at Trent Internationale in Sugar Land, Texas. At 6-foot-9 and 255 pounds, he will be one of the bigger members on the team during his first collegiate season.

"We are very happy to welcome Ahmed into our program," said head coach James Dickey, who will be in his fourth season with the Cougars in 2013-14. "He is a tough, interior player and an excellent rebounder. With his physical gifts, Ahmed will provide depth in our frontcourt."

As a senior at Trent Internationale, Hamdy averaged a double-double with 18.7 points and 13.6 rebounds per game and added 1.3 blocks and 4.0 steals per contest. With numbers like that, he was honored as the state's Most Valuable Player.

As a junior, he led the Phoenix to the Private Independent State championship with a win against the No. 1 seed.

Hamdy scored 18 points with nine rebounds in a loss against Argentina and added 18 points with eight boards against the United States.
