Mylik Wilson Signs with Houston Cougars Men's Basketball
POSTED: June 3, 2022 -- 11:49 a.m. CT
Guard Mylik Wilson has officially joined the Houston Cougars Men's Basketball program after recently signing a scholarship agreement. Kelvin Sampson, Houston Cougars Men's Basketball Head Coach, mentioned this news Thursday morning during his media availability session.
Wilson, 6'3", 175 pounds, recently finished his junior season at Texas Tech. He will have two years of eligibility remaining with the Cougars starting in 2022-23. Since Mylik transferred from Louisiana to Texas Tech before transferring from Texas Tech to Houston, Mylik will need an NCAA waiver to be immediately eligible and participate in the 2022-23 season.
"The thing I like about Mylik is that he fits what a Cougar Basketball player looks like to us. He is tough, he is athletic and he has a lot of winner in him," Sampson said. "I also like the fact that he is from Elvin Hayes' hometown."
