Former Houston guard Tramon Mark enters the transfer portal. Could the Aggies land the Texas native?
Texas A&M has plenty of opportunities this off-season to land an immediate contributor in the transfer portal after 1,000 players have entered their names since it opened last month. With four possible starters returning next season, head coach Buzz Williams can be very judicious during the selection process.
After the Aggies sadly fell to Penn State in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament last month, their main area of weakness remains the same as it’s been the last two seasons; perimeter shooting. Now, replacing the defensive production of the departing Dexter Dennis also needs to be addressed, and may be an in-house fix with reserve guard and former five-star recruit Manny Obaseki.
Since the Aggies Tournament exit, Aggies wire has covered who the program should target relentlessly, but after former Houston guard Tramon Mark entered the portal on Saturday, his potential fit in Williams’ point guard-centric offense is near perfect, especially with senior guard Tyrece Radford does not return for 2023.
Entering what would be his senior season, Mark is also testing the NBA Draft waters, so nothing is set in stone. During the 2022 season, Mark averaged 10.1 points and 4.9 rebounds with the Cougars, who as one of four No.1 seeds in this year’s NCAA Tournament made it to the Sweet 16, losing to Final Four participant Miami.
