Delaware graduate Gerald Drumgoole Jr. transfers and commits to GW men’s basketball team.

Men’s basketball landed Delaware transfer Gerald Drumgoole Jr., according to a post May 3 made on X, formerly known as Twitter, by Jeff Goodman.

The former Blue Hen guard averaged 13.9 points per game this past season, paired with 3.8 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game. Drumgoole’s transfer to the District comes after spending his graduate season at Delaware and undergraduate seasons at Pittsburgh from 2019 to 2021 and then Albany from 2021 to 2023. 

Drumgoole’s commitment marks the fourth addition to Head Coach Chris Caputo’s roster for the 2024-25 season. He joins Cornell senior forward Sean Hansen and Providence redshirt sophomore forward Rafael Castro, who both committed earlier in the offseason, as well as William & Mary guard Trey Moss. 

The Delaware Blue Hens finished 10-8 in Coastal Athletic Association play, good for sixth overall. During the season, Delaware would go 19-14. 

The 6’5″ guard started in 19 of the Blue Hens’ 33 games, including getting the nod from the jump in the team’s last 16 conference games. Drumgoole’s best offensive showing of the season came in Delaware’s game Feb. 15 against Elon, where the Rochester, New York, native recorded 24 points on eight of 17 from the field, including six of a dozen from beyond the arc in the team’s 73-67 loss at the hands of the Phoenix. 

In Delaware’s game against the Revs in the Bahamas on Nov. 26, Drumgoole tallied 12 points in 24 minutes off the bench in his team’s 81-71 loss. 

Prior to attending Delaware, Drumgoole went to Pitt, appearing in 30 games over two seasons before transferring to Albany before the 2021-22 season. Drumgoole’s first campaign at Albany was cut short after one game when he suffered an injury, causing him to miss the remainder of the season. In his senior season at Albany, he averaged 15.7 points per game, leading him to be the Great Danes’ team leader in points, assists and steals. 

Drumgoole’s shooting prowess should help to replace the production of departing guard Maximus Edwards, who averaged 12.4 points per game this past season. The Delaware transfer’s 458 points last season would have placed him second on the Revs, only trailing senior guard James Bishop IV.
