Robert Morris transfer AJ Bramah has committed to the Nevada Wolf Pack men’s basketball team, CBS Sports insider Jon Rothstein reported Friday. He will have one season of eligibility remaining.

Bramah, a 6-foot-7 wing, originally committed Arizona State over Nevada, St. Bonaventure and Western Kentucky in March, but he decommitted from the Sun Devils on Monday.

Bramah averaged 21 points, 10.3 rebounds and 1.4 steals on 51.1 percent shooting in 12 games (11 starts) with Robert Morris last season. In 2019-20, he tallied 13.4 points and grabbed a team-high 8.2 rebounds on 56.2 percent shooting in 33 games (13 starts) — earning All-Northeast conference second-team honors.

The San Leandro, Calif., native recorded double figures in 41 of his 45 career games with the Colonials. Bramah tallied 14 career double-doubles and had nine 20-plus point performances — including a career-high 28 points (on 11-of-18 shooting) with eight rebounds against Purdue-Fort Wayne on Dec. 26, 2020. He recorded double-doubles in six of his final seven outings last season.

Bramah spent the first two seasons of his collegiate career at Sheridan Junior College in Sheridan, Wyo. In 62 career contests, he averaged 13.2 points and 8.8 rebounds per game — tallying 23 double-figure performances with five 20-point outings.

He fills Nevada’s final remaining scholarship, which was vacated from Addison Patterson’s departure after the program announced that he was no longer with the Wolf Pack this week. The Wolf Pack essentially replaced Patterson and Wichita State transfer Trey Wade for Bramah and Kenan Blackshear — who transferred from Florida Atlantic earlier this month.
