Introducing 08' Recruit Muhammed Conteh

The Dayton Flyers have concluded the 2007 recruiting class and will now put a lot of effort into complimenting that class with an even better 2008 recruiting class. Dayton Insider and will try and bring you the newest and most in depth information on this recruiting class as we spent most of the summer evaluating this class around the country.

Muhammed Conteh is a 6-6 Forward from Gambia, Africa. Muhammed came over to the United States in 2004 through the A-Hope Foundation and is taking every opportunity to show that he has learned the American game well and is improving at a very fast pace with his hard work and tireless effort. Muha as most people around him call him has a body that few college kids have when they first arrive on campus. He is a very soft spoken young man who will bring his best effort every time he steps on the court.

This year Muhammed is attending Providence School of Jacksonville, Florida. He will be a big part of the team's success as he will be the only legitimate big man on the roster. Big Muha has spent the last 3 years playing AAU basketball for Team Indiana / Indiana Elite. "I want to work on every part of my game. I have been taking 2,000 shots everyday since I started school and will try to improve every part of my game." The one thing that stands out about this young man is his desire and dedication for the game of basketball.

Dayton Insider asked Muhammed what schools have shown interest in him. "I am getting interest from Indiana State, Iowa State, Bradley, Illinois State, Dayton, Jacksonville, Northern Florida, Notre Dame, and Virginia Tech. Coach Rankin was down to see me last week and he said that they would be watching me closely and will be keeping in touch."

Dayton Insider's Scouting Report:
He is long and strong. His strengths are rebounding and defending in the post. He has improved a lot since April and continues to work his butt off. His defense is ahead of his offense but that is to be expected as he learns the game. His shot has improved dramatically. He needs to work on perimeter defense and his shot selection. Muha has Mid-Major plus to High-Major minus talent.
