Coaches Will Make Evaluations
After the early signing period comes and goes next week, the most popular prospects in the country will be those with big man skills. Meet Femi Ibikunle.
"He's high-major," New Hampton head coach Jamie Arsenault says of his prospect. "I think he's as good a big guy as I've seen in this league. He's strong, he's quick and he can run the floor. He's an absolute physical specimen. I measured him without he's shoes and he's 6-8. The problem is that he's so big and strong that he looks smaller than he is."
We can see what Arsenault means. In the summer, when we saw Femi at the Big Time, he looked about 6-7 and 220. Arsenault says he's much bigger.
The Nigerian has seen his interest level pretty much go through the roof. Arsenault said that Cincinnati, Memphis and St. John's offered him early. Villanova has called. So have the North Carolina Tar Heels. Arsenault says that there'll be plenty of schools peering at Femi at the War on The Shore next week.
Femi has a qualifying SAT score posted so that's a plus.
