Ulrich Craving Recruiting Attention

Looking for an athletic small forward? Want to spend a spring scholarship on a guy with good grades who loves to play defense? Meet Kossepka Ulrich.

Starving For Attention

Lanham (MD) Lanham Christian small forward Kossepka Ulrich is a relative unknown on the recruiting radar. Heck, up until Monday night, we thought his name was Ulrich Kossepka. The 6-4 athlete hails from the Republic of Central Africa and is looking for a school.

"Right now, no one calls or sends me letters," Ulrich said. "I'm still waiting. I have a 3.4 and took my SAT on Nov. 3."

Ulrich played in the summer with the DC Assault. He's a tenacious defender who really gets after it on the wings. That's the best part of his game. Offensively, most of his points stem from his athleticism. He's not a shooter, but he makes plays. He certainly has mid-major talent.

"I want to go somewhere in the Big East or anywhere I can play," Ulrich said. "I like that conference because it's very competitive and will make me get better."

Ulrich said that he isn't opposed to the idea of attending prep school next season.
