Tangara's list unchanged, Cards still favorite
After an intense week at the Nike All-American Camp in Indianapolis, Mohamed Tangara is taking some time away from the rigors of the AAU circuit to recoup and hone his skills at Mt. Zion Christian Academy in Durham.
ITV spoke with Mt. Zion Head Coach Tony Fozard on Monday about Mohamed's performance at Nike last week and his rapidly heated recruitment.
Fozard indicated that Mohamed was pleased with his performance and mentioned how competitive and tiring the camp was.
Mohamed finished ranked the ninth best center and the thirty-eighth best player overall. Tangara had impressive stats, averaging 14 points 7 rebounds and 2 blocks per game.
Since April, Tangara and those close to him, including Fozard and Linzy Davis, the coach of the Georgia Elite have repeatedly told ITV that Louisville was the leader for the 6'9 power forwards services. Just last week, Tangara reiterated to ITV that the Cards were atop his list of schools.
Fozard indicated that, "Mohamed plans on making an official visit to Louisville."
When asked if Louisville was still the favorite on Monday, Fozard replied, "Right now Louisville is the favorite."
Fozard also mentioned that Robbie Simpson, a 6' 8 wing forward originally from Louisville, also attends Mt. Zion and that he is also likes Louisville.
Simpson also lists Western Kentucky, Kentucky and Murray State along with the Cards.
