West Coast Schools On Amoke

Omondi Amoke, a talented junior wing from Oxnard (Calif.) is looking to prove that he's better than he showed last summer when he was injured. Several Pac-10 programs, among others, are looking at the junior wing...

Omondi Amoke, 6-5 JR SF Oxnard (Calif.) High, is having an excellent junior season. Oxnard is still alive in the CIF Southern Section playoffs and Amoke is a big part of the equation.

Amoke struggled last summer after suffering an ankle injury and he's anxious to play this spring and summer in front of college coaches. He told us he likely won't make a decision until after the summer, so that coaches will be able to see what he can do when healthy.

When asked about the schools that have been recruiting him, Amoke said, "Definitely UCLA, USC, Cal, Washington, Oregon and Utah. I feel like I'm forgetting another school. Most of the Pac-10 has been in contact."

We asked Amoke which schools have been out to see him recently.

"USC was out today at practice. Cal was supposed to be out today, but they have a game in Washington on Thursday."

We asked Amoke if any schools stand out from the pack.

"No, they're all still in a group," said Amoke.

When questioned about scholarship offers, Amoke replied, "None of them have offered yet, but a few seem pretty close."
