Basketballghana.com gathers Derrick Quansah’s departure from East Carolina University’s Men’s Basketball Team was down to “personal reasons”.
Budding Ghana Center Quansah left Carolina’s program earlier this year after enrolling only last year and redshirted after to give himself time to learn the system and develop his offensive game.
The 6 foot 11 inch player was recruited as a raw athletic defender with the chance to develop his contribution on the offensive side bar putbacks and dunks.
East Carolina Coach Joe Dooley praised Quansah when the Ghanaian joined the program and credited the latter’s desire to be “coached” and “wanting to get better”.
However, Quansah’s time with the Pirates was short lived as it was announced he had departed East Carolina University in January.
He was part of a growing number of young Ghanaian players mostly Forwards and Centers who are enrolled on Division I Basketball programs in the US.
Quansah was born in Cape Coast and moved to the United States and enrolled at the Village Christian Academy.
