Jeff Goodman Reports that Fardaws Aimaq is Expected to Transfer from Texas Tech



Over the summer, Fardaws Aimaq was the name to know in the transfer portal after he decided to leave Utah Valley and test the waters of the portal.

Aimaq, a two-time WAC Defensive Player of the Year, averaged 18.9 and 13.6 rebounds per game last season for UVU before entering the portal. He then fielded a crowded recruitment, with schools like Arkansas, Houston, Texas Tech, and Houston coming after him hard.

Aimaq stands at 6-foot-11, 245 pounds and began his career at Mercer in the SoCon. He then played two seasons at Utah Valley, averaging 10+ rebounds both seasons and shooting 49% from two and 45% from three in his two seasons there.

He eventually settled on Texas Tech, committing to Mark Adams’ Red Raiders. However, Aimaq suffered a foot injury before the season, and after initially being expected to return for the season, he was ruled out until at least February. Aimaq did not play a single game in a Red Raider uniform.

Now, according to Stadium’s Jeff Goodman, Aimaq intends to once again hit the portal in search of a new home.
