Mohamoud, who hails from Rexdale, has enrolled in the General Arts and Science program at Humber College and will begin his freshman season at North Campus this Fall.

"Humber College is close to home and has a welcoming environment," said Mohamoud when asked why he chose Humber.  "The basketball program has a winning history that I plan on contributing to."

A four-time York Region Athletic Association champion, Mohamoud competed for the provincial powerhouse Vaughan Voyageurs.

"He comes from a great program, having played at Vaughan for Coach Gymnopoulos," added Coach Au.  "We are really looking forward to having Fowzi be an integral part of our team."

Mohamoud, along with incoming recruits Jaspreet Singh, Jerome Gayle, and Terry Hill, will join the rest of the Humber men's basketball program on September 5 when open tryouts begin.
