LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Moses Abraham Ayegba (EYE-eg-buh) of Georgetown has signed transfer papers to play at Nebraska for one season.

Ayegba will graduate from Georgetown with a degree in economics next month and be eligible to play for the Cornhuskers in 2014-15.

The 6-foot-9, 247-pound Ayegba played in 31 games for the Hoyas last season, averaging 1.9 points and 2.8 rebounds. He was second on the team with 23 blocked shots.

Nebraska coach Tim Miles said Thursday that Ayegba provides a physical presence inside and can affect the game on the defensive end with his rebounding and shot blocking. Miles said Ayegba is capable of improving on the offensive end.

Nebraska assistant Kenya Hunter coached Ayegba for three seasons on Georgetown’s staff.
