Drumgoole entered the transfer portal over a month ago and finally made the decision to join the Great Danes program.
After entering the Panthers program as a four-star recruit, the Rochester, New York native failed to break through at Pitt. In two seasons with the program, Drumgoole started two games and appeared in 30 overall games, scoring 42 points and grabbing 31 rebounds in those appearances. This season, he appeared in nine games, averaging 1.9 points and 0.8 rebounds per game.
He will be joining an Albany team led by new head coach Dwayne Killings, who was recently hired to lead the program after serving as an associate coach at Marquette for a few years. Last season, Albany went 7-9, including 6-6 in America East play.
With a new opportunity for the Great Danes, Drumgoole will look to play to his full potential and earn a bigger role than he had at Pitt.
