Raji Has Three in Front

Corey Raji may not be a household name, but the Westwood Regional (N.J.) 6-foot-6 junior has plenty of suitors - and offers.

Corey Raji knows that when opposing power forwards take a quick look at him, they think they're going to have it easy.

What they don't realize is that the 6-foot-6 (and that might be generous), 200-pound junior plays much bigger than his size.

``I guess they figure I'm not 6-8, but I just go out and show them I'm not just a regular kid on the court."

Raji, who starred at Westwood Regional (N.J.) as a junior this past season, is hoping to showcase his all-around game this spring and summer with the Playaz Basketball Club in an effort to turn himself into a Top 50-caliber player.

The younger Raji knows he still needs to work on his perimeter game, since the majority of his time is spent in the paint. However, he said that he was able to play everywhere this past season at Westwood – including some point guard.

While the talent evaluators may not have caught on quite yet, it's clear by looking at his list of schools who he says have offered that college coaches see his value quite differently.

Raji said he's fielded offers from Miami, Maryland, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Boston College, Penn State, St. John's and Seton Hall already. He also mentioned Wake Forest as in the mix.

His trio of frontrunners include Miami, BC and Virginia.

Raji's brother, B.J., is a mammoth right tackle on BC's football team.

``The most important thing will be how I fit in," Raji said. "And how good their business program is. Education is important to me."
