Goloman starting to garner interest

If a 6-foot-10 big man begins to emerge in late September schools usually take notice. That is the case for Gyorgy Goloman, a native of Hungary, who is playing his senior year at Weston (Fla.) Sagemont School.

A 2014 big man is starting to emerge in Florida.

Gyorgy Goloman, a 6-foot-10 post player, made his way to the United States from Hungary for his final year of high school basketball. Goloman enrolled at Weston (Fla.) Sagemont School.

According to Sagemont coach Adam Ross, Goloman is a talented post player equipped with tools on the offensive end and a tremendous upside.

"He's thin, but ultra skilled," Ross told Scout.com. "He's made a big impression on the coaches that have been here."

"He's ultra skilled," he added. "I mean unbelievably skilled. He has fantastic hands and can really pass the ball. He finishes well with both hands and catches everything. He's a below the rim guy. He's very, very long and he runs very well."

Davidson seems to have an early jump on his recruitment, as they were recruiting him before he came to the United States. Richmond saw him in the European Championships and began recruiting once he made his way to Sagemont.

"He had a home visit with Bob McKillop and Davidson and a home visit with Chris Mooney and Richmond," Ross said. "New Mexico was here on Tuesday to see Prince [Ali] and they ended up offering the big kid."

New Mexico head coach Craig Neal is expected at Sagemont today to meet with Goloman after school.

Tulane, TCU, UAB and Florida Gulf Coast also evaluated him at Sagemont last week.
