However, the school with the best tie to Raji is Boston College where his brother is a starter on the defensive line for the Eagles. B.J. Raji's presence at B.C. aides the Eagles chances.
"It helps," Raji said. "My parents want me to go there because my brother went there. If I go there people will treat me with respect."
Raji, a player with a tremendous amount of energy and passion, will likely play the small forward in college. "I'd have to work on my handle and get a better shot," Raji said.
As he's set to begin his junior season, regardless of what position he plays, rebounding ranks as his top asset. "It's a God-given talent," Raji said. As a sophomore for Westwood Regional, the 6-5 forward averaged 16 boards a game.
