Wildens Leveque will return to the SEC.

The UMass men’s basketball graduate transfer forward will use his extra season of eligibility to play for Texas A&M, he announced Monday.

Leveque entered the transfer portal in mid June after one season as a Minuteman. The 6-foot-10 Brockton native spent the previous three seasons at South Carolina then followed Frank Martin to Amherst from Columbia after Martin was hired at UMass.

He faced the Aggies four times as a Gamecock and scored 10 points against them as a sophomore in 2021.

In 28 games as a Minuteman, Leveque averaged 5.5 points and 4.6 rebounds per game. He battled tendonitis in both knees and had offseason surgery that limited his activity. 

Leveque’s commitment should wrap up a busy offseason for the Minutemen.
