Former TCU center Yuat Alok is transferring to UCF, according to a Thursday press release from UCF Athletics.
The 6-foot-11 junior played in 10 games for TCU this season before suffering a hand injury in December. He entered the NCAA transfer portal soon after the injury.
"We're excited to bring in a player of Yuat's caliber," UCF head coach Johnny Dawkins said in the release.
Alok moved from New Zealand to play his first two collegiate seasons at Chipola College in Marianna, Florida before deciding to transfer to TCU last January. As a sophomore at Chipola, he averaged 12.3 points and seven rebounds per game.
At the time he committed to TCU, Alok was ranked as the No. 1 junior college prospect in his class by JUCORecruiting.com.
The Kenyan-born center would need a medical redshirt in order to have two years of eligibility to play for the Knights, according to UCF Rivals publisher Brandon Helwig.
UCF will return to the CFE Arena on Saturday to host Tulsa. Tipoff is scheduled for noon.
