Former Villanova forward Isaiah Armwood said he has chosen George Washington as the place where he will continue his college basketball career.

Armwood lands at George Washington

Isaiah Armwood, who announced earlier this month he was transferring out of Villanova, said he will continue his college basketball career at George Washington.

Armwood, a 6-foot-8 forward who played for two seasons with the Wildcats, has to sit out the upcoming season under NCAA rules but he will have two years of eligibility remaining.

Armwood, who played his high school ball at Montrose Christian in suburban Washington, told the Washington Post he chose George Washington over other schools because of his relationship with the Colonials' coaching staff.

GW assistant coach Pete Strickland had recruited Armwood in high school when he was an assistant at North Carolina State.

“I just felt real comfortable with the coaching staff,” Armwood said in the Post. “It’s a great school.”

Armwood, who announced his decision to transfer after returning from Villanova's tour of Europe, averaged 2.5 points and 3.6 rebounds last season.
