American born Ghanaian basketball player Bashir Ahmed’s time in College came to an end early last month after his side got bundled out of the postseason.

The St. John’s University Forward played two seasons with Hutchinson Community College before moving to the New York-based institution.

Despite averaging 12.3 points per game in his time at St. John’s and registering 35 steals in 33 games this season, Ahmed isn’t likely to get picked in this year’s NBA Draft.

However, the 6 foot 7 inch Forward has a lot of options after starring for the Red Storm in two years with a professional career overseas a viable option.

He could sign up to play in the Summer League for an NBA team and work his way to make the roster for the 2018-2019 season.

Should he go undrafted, Ahmed could go the route of fellow Ghanaian Amida Brimah who has improved his stock playing for Austin Spurs in the NBA Gatorade League.

Despite winning 16 of 33 games, St. John’s gained national attention by beating top ranked Duke University and eventual champions Villanova.
