It was reported yesterday that Fordham forward Christian Sengfelder will transfer for his final year of eligibility and can play immediately.
Fordham forward Chris Sengfelder told ESPN he will transfer. Will graduate. Averaged 12.1 ppg and 5.1 rpg. 6-foot-7 from Germany.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) March 23, 2017
At 6-7, 240 he is definitely a guy that could get some minutes at the 4 next year for Wake Forest, and he seems to fit the mold of grad transfer that we have brought in. He played 80% of the minutes last year for the Rams, producing at 109 offensive rating, and a top 20 turnover rate nationally.
He has already accrued over 1,000 points in his career (1,013), and is a 35% three-point shooter in his career. His 58% (on 114 shots) from 2-pt range ranked 178th nationally, but his free throw rate is lower than I would like for a guy who has his body type, as he only attempted 42 on the year (1.35 FTA per game).
Sengfelder made the A10 All Academic team, so it doesn’t appear getting into Wake would be a problem.
His rebounding and block rates probably aren’t where we want them to be if he is going to be a “plug and play” for 10-15 minutes. This is especially true since the primary ask of any grad transfer at the 4 would be to rebound and play defense.
All in all he is probably not going to be at the top of the list for Wake, but he is certainly a guy to keep an eye on if we get deeper into this period and are having trouble filling the spot.
