"I signed with Santa Clara today," said Atanga. "When I took my visit there I felt good about the school and I really like Coach Keating. I believe he can turn me into a better player and I like the team and the program."
Atanga, a native of Cameroon, was overlooked by a lot of schools because he plays for a small school in a remote area and he also missed a portion of the July evaluation period when he returned to Cameroon. But there's no question he has a considerable upside. A terrific athlete, Atanga plays with outstanding energy and he has a chance to defend multiple spots at the next level.
