Aniefiok Emerges At Huntington Prep

Maurice Aniefiok, a 2011 wing, has emerged as a potential high major prospect at Huntington Prep. Who has the inside track on him?

Last year Gorgui Dieng was the standout African player for Rob Fulford at Huntington (W.V.) Prep. This year it's 6-foot-5 wing prospect Maurice Aniefiok.

"He's extremely physical," Fulford said. "He can really shoot and he's not overly explosive off the dribble, but his strength and size make up for that. He's plenty athletic, but he's got to learn to play at a little faster pace."

Fulford said the talented 2011 prospect is still learning to give 100-percent every time out.

"I think once he figures out that he can't take plays off and that he has to have his motor the entire game I think he'll make a huge impact," he said. "He's an impact player because he rebounds. He can obviously defend and he can shoot, pass and dribble."

Much like Dieng, who signed with Louisville last year, there has been no shortage of college interest in Aniefiok.

"He's had a ton call," the Huntington Prep coach said. "Georgetown, UCLA, Arizona State, Oregon, Ole Miss. Cincinnati has been in and West Virginia has been in."

"He has taken his SAT, but hasn't take any officials yet," Fulford added. "He did take an unofficial to West Virginia's midnight madness, but that's been the only trip he's matter."

According to Fulford, Aniefiok will be a Spring signee and this point West Virginia is the school that sticks out.

"I would say right now that they are his leader," he said. "But it's basically what he's seen."
