Ezeli, a potential red shirt candidate, experienced a prospect awakening this summer at Reebok U. His presence and subsequent performance had programs scrambling to access information about him. There was talk of attending prep school but the academic minded Ezeli got his transcript in order and opted to make Vanderbilt his home.
Working off the assumption that Ezeli would prep this coming season, Scout.com rated him the No. 14 post-graduate prospect in the nation. The late bloomer will turn 18 in October and according to a recent newspaper article, has yet to play a full season of organized basketball.
It's tough to get better this late in the game but this certainly has the markers of an exception.
