St. Ray's Trio Picks Up Interest

Oliver Antigua has a trio of prospects -- Nkereuwem Okoro, Daniel Dingle & Devin Brooks -- at St. Raymond's that are picking up interest from college programs.

Oliver Antigua has a handful of guys at Bronx (N.Y.) St. Raymond's that are beginning to garner college looks.

Nkereuwem Okoro, Daniel Dingle and Devin Brooks have all put together impressive seasons for St. Raymond's and each has already earned at least one high major scholarship offer.

Okoro, a 6-foot-3 wing, is St. Ray's most talked about prospect. The 2012 prospect started slow, but as the season wore on he's picked up his effort.

"The light went off," Antigua told "He's locked in. He's making threes and is averaging on the season over 16 a game. He's the leading sophomore scorer over the entire city."

Thus far Okoro has scholarship offers and has unofficially visited both St. John's and Hofstra. He also has interest from Kentucky, Arizona, USC, Villanova, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Pittsburgh.

"He'll be active this summer taking some visits to a few places," Antigua added.

Dingle, who is also a sophomore, is putting 15 points a game for St. Raymond's. The 6-foot-6 post prospect has made a major impact on the team and is leading them in a pair of categories.

"He leads our teams in rebounds, assists and is second in scoring," Antigua said. "He's a good passer, has an high IQ skill wise. He's a four man that could possible get to a three because of his handle and skills."

Dingle currently holds a scholarship offer from St. John's, while schools like Virginia, Virginia Tech, West Virginia, Arizona, Pittsburgh and USC have all shown interest.

Brooks, a 6-foot-1 guard, is in his first season at St. Raymond's and according to Antigua is a guy flying below the radar.

"Teams haven't seen him," he said. "I think he's going to blow up because he's so quick. He's averaging 12 points a game."

Brooks, who may have to go to a prep school next season, has a scholarship offer from St. John's and is receiving interest from Hofstra.
