Junior Big Man Open

Beas Hamga is an athletic 7-footer who made his decision to play for Steve Alford at Iowa early in the process. Now that Alford has moved onto New Mexico, Hamga has re-opened his recruitment - and already has a list of schools.

Beas Hamga is back on the board.

The 7-foot, 225-pound Decatur Christian (Ill.) junior big man, who had committed to Iowa, has re-opened his recruitment.

``I was disappointed with everything that happened," Hamga said.

Hamga spent last season at Cornerstone Christian before playing this season for Alan Huss at Decatur Christian.

``He's made tremendous strides," Huss said. "Shot-blocking comes naturally to him, but he's made strides offensively."

Hamga recited a list of schools that includes UNLV, Tennessee, Indiana, Florida, Kentucky, UConn, Georgetown and Memphis.

Hamga will also look at New Mexico and wait and see whoever gets the Iowa job.

Those are the primary schools he is looking at because he doesn't want to be overwhelmed by the process.

``He is dominant in stretches, but he needs to be more consistent and dominate entire games," Huss said. "He's certainly capable."
