A two time all-state selection and the leading scorer in his high school's history, small forward Omar Wattad selected georgetown over offers from Vanderbilt and Massachusetts in the fall of 2006, joining the Hoyas in th fall of 2007. Wattad averaged 2.1 points overall over two seasons, but did not play in six of the last nine games of the 2008-09 season and Georgetown announced his transfer a month later.

"Omar will not return to Georgetown next year," Coach John Thompson III said. "We wish Omar the best in his future."

"I think there is attrition in college basketball, in one form or another," Thompson told The HOYA. "People leave because they are unhappy with the basketball situation, people leave because they have things going on in their personal life, and people leave because they don't have the opportunity to return." Thompson did not elaborate which of the three applied to Wattad.

Wattad transferred to Tennessee-Chattanooga and was much more successful there. A two-time all-Southern Conference selection, he ranked fourth at UTC for career three-point field goals, fifth in three-point field goal attempts and 30th in scoring despite only two years a that school. Wattad scored 820 points in two seasons compared to just 76 in two seasons at Georgetown.

Wattad earned a master's degree at Division II Lincoln Memorial University and has served as an assistant coach there from 2014 to 2017.
