Recruiting Update: John Riek

Reporter Mike Sullivan has story on John Riek (7'2, 260, C) of Our Savior New American ...

John Riek, a 7-foot-2 center from Our Savior New American in Centereach, New York, is wide open in his recruiting process, according to OSNA assistant coach Eric Jaklitsch.

Riek was on hand this week for the Mobile Elite All Star event held at Rucker Park this evening. Riek participated in yesterday's scrimmage and dazzled onlookers with his ability to finish around the basket and block shots competing inside the gym on the grounds of Columbia University.

"He has such a big list," said Jaklitsch. "There are so many big name schools that have called or showed interest in him. So it really doesn't make sense to even have a list right now."

Jaklitsch had previously mentioned schools like DePaul, Georgia Tech, Pittsburgh, Florida, Duke, Connecticut, St. John's, Georgetown, Ohio State, Kentucky, and Connecticut.

"He has no favorite right now," Jaklitsch said.

"Right now he is just focusing on this week and then getting ready to go back to school at Our Savior," Jaklitsch added.
