refrezh reportedly reaches verbal agreement with Evil Geniuses
According to a report by BLIX, Evil Geniuses have a verbal agreement with Ismail "refrezh" Ali to join the main roster in place of Jadan "HexT" Postma. The former Sprout rifler recently benched himself on the German organization after differences with the structure and direction of the roster.
Evil Geniuses have reportedly agreed with the player, however Dust2.us knows that nothing has been finalized at the moment. With many questions surrounding the Seattle-based organization following a disappointing 2023 season that included a failure to qualify for the BLAST.tv Paris Major Americas RMR, it is not surprising that the team is reportedly making roster changes at this point.
For HexT, it marks the end of a nine month stint on the main roster after his promotion from EG Black. The young Canadian was thrown into an experienced squad and soon made his mark by being an emotional lighting rod thanks to his LAN trash talk.
Should the refrezh move come to fruition, it would be the second European import for the squad and likely the last as the team intends to remain majority North American.
If Evil Geniuses sign refrezh in place of HexT, the roster will be as follows:
Vincent "Brehze Cayonte
Timothy "autimatic" Ta
Sanzhar "neaLaN" İskhakov
Jerric "wiz" Jiang
Ismail "refrezh" Ali
Daniel "Vorborg" Vorborg (Coach)
