By moving to San Marcos, Mensah makes a return to the Golden State after spending two seasons with San Diego State University prior to his move to James Madison.

It also marks his second transfer in as many years after finding playing time difficult to come by at both San Diego State and James Madison.

For the first time in his College career, the athletic defender won’t compete in the NCAA Division I but will do so in Division II. Mensah is regarded for his athletic plays on defense and rim protection with work needed on his offensive game.
