not even an offer from anyone yet. Unranked by Rivals and ESPN. Looks like a big-time upside recruit.
He's ranked #74 by Rivals for 2014. Obviously it's hard to assess much based off just a highlight video but he looks very smooth, athletic and skilled for a guy of his size. Definitely someone to keep an eye on
For some reason I couldn't find a rivals ranking. Yeah, upside more than anything at this point. I've seen quite a few videos on him, more game highlights than mixtape-style. He is not as raw in the post as most 7+ underclassmen. Has a nice touch, a great dropstep, and nice athleticism. Definitely one to watch
Wow! He's 7-2? That's really impressive.
Georgetown better be offering this kid. He looks like he could possibly be something special. But he needs the right school.
He's definitely a good fit for a halfcourt team like Georgetown.
Yeah that would be a nice addition and a perfect place for him.
Of course very skiny for a guy with his age and his length but very mobile and explosive for his size.
For a guy with the same size as Hibbert or almost Thabeet a very nice motion running the court and moving in the post.
Will be interesting to see which path he will go!
Nice find, he's listed at 220lbs which is a concern in terms of how much weight he can add while maintaining his athletic ability not to mention the stress that will be put on his legs and more importantly his knees. Other than that, he looks like an impressive prospect who has intriguing potential. I'd love to know more about him from somebody who has watched him consistently.
He's based out of Connecticut, so any of our New England brothers please chime in!
use to go to my gym, maybe he still does. he is crazy skinny. (or atleast he was) however when i saw him i legit couldnt take my eyes off of him because ive never seen someone so tall or lanky. actually i then saw him and this kid sean obi who is playing for Rice next year at 5 guys the burger joint. when he played for TC he wasnt that good. looks like he got alot better.
I don't know guys, he looks good but I just don't buy into these 7ft tall african guys for some reason.. I think their skill rarely matches their size. Look at John Riek, or David Nyarsuk.. Almost identical body types but no real progress with the game... Let's wait and see. One guy that really stands out of this ''category'' is Joel Embiid. He really has natural feel for the game of basketball and could make a difference at any level if he is trusted by his coaches.
