San Diego State University Shooting Guard Matt Bradley has heaped a ton of praise on Ghanaian Center Nathan Mensah as the latter contemplates his future the Aztecs.

Mensah completed his fourth season with San Diego State in the just ended 2021-2022 season and is still eligible to play a fifth season due to the NCAA giving an extra year of eligibility due to the COVID 19 Pandemic that heavily affected the 2020 season.


“I think the player of the year is Nate Mensah,” Bradley said earlier this season. “He guarded Ike, (Orlando Robinson). He’s the reason we won multiple games this year. What Nate has done for our team defensively, it has been really big. I consider him the most valuable player on our team and the most valuable player in the conference” Bradley said according to
