Weber State men’s basketball: Seikou Sisoho Jawara enters transfer portal
Weber State men’s basketball lost a two-year starter Wednesday when 6-foot-3 guard Seikou Sisoho Jawara entered the transfer portal.
Sisoho Jawara has two seasons of eligibility remaining and was expected to remain a significant contributor for the 2022-23 season but has elected to leave the program.
He’s a graduate transfer, Verbal Commits reports, so he may pursue professional opportunities. If he remains in college, he should be eligible to play next season as a graduate transfer despite entering the portal after the May 1 deadline for immediate eligibility.
Sisoho Jawara was a two-time All-Big Sky selection for Weber State after transferring to Ogden from Loyola Marymount. The native of Spain was a second-team selection in 2020-21 and a third-team choice in the recently completed 2021-22 season.
Sisoho Jawara started all 56 games he played at Weber State, averaging 12.3 points and 3.1 assists per game while shooting 41.8% from the 3-point line. He totaled five 3-pointers in six career games, with a career-high 6 of 7 at Eastern Washington this past season. He carries a career scoring high of 25 points.
With his departure, and commitments from freshman guard JJ Louden, freshman wing Chris Dockery and freshman wing/forward Louie Jordan, Weber State has five scholarships remaining for next season. With three freshmen already signed or committed, it seems likely most of the remaining spots will be filled by Division I or junior college transfers.
The Wildcats are pursuing at least one graduate transfer guard with a high-scoring history at the mid-major level, and they’ll need at least one center as well. Additionally, New Hampshire guard Marco Foster (three seasons remaining) and Southern Illinois guard Steve Verplancken Jr. (two seasons remaining) have publicly reported interest from Weber State.
