Junior Lomomba Continues to Add Offers

A Midwest prospect who has seen interest from all over the country is Junior Lomomba of Madison Memorial High School (Wi.). Lomomba chatted with GoldenSports.net about his recruitment and relationship with the coaching staff at Minnesota.

Lomomba is a 6-foot-4 swingman out of Madison, Wisconsin and is rated as a three-star by Scout.com. This past season he dominated Wisconsin high school basketball and helped lead his team to a state title.

"This year I averaged 17 points per game, nine rebounds, and four assists. [I] lead my team to the State Championship and we won," he said. "This is my second state title in three years being at Memorial High School. This year's championship was a great team effort and my teammates and I came together as a team to finish our season strong."

This success has led to Lomomba garnering interest from the likes of New Mexico State, Nevada, West Virginia, Minnesota, Kansas, Cincinnati, Michigan, Iowa, LSU, Georgetown, Marquette, and Florida. Lomomba claims offers from New Mexico State, Nevada, Cincinnati, West Virginia, Minnesota, Tennessee, Baylor and Indiana State.

This high number of schools can be attributed to Lomamba's great versatility. "I can play all three guard positions and option to post if I am guarded by someone shorter than me," he said. "I am an all around player that can manage to score in different ways on the floor and defend all three guard positions."

With a multitude of different college options, Lomomba knows what he is looking for. "I am looking for a school who has an interest in me personally as a player and would want me to make an immediate impact in their basketball program right away," he said. "Also, a school that would take an interest in developing me as a basketball player and career within their basketball program."

He also knows the type of coaching staff he wants to play for. "Right now, I am getting a feel for every coach and see where I fit in as player within their philosophy and team concept," he said.

One coach who Lomomba has been in contact with is Gophers' assistant Vince Taylor. "I had several conversations with Coach Vince Taylor," he said. "Most of my conversations with Coach Taylor have been very beneficial. He has expressed his interest in me as a player and will continue to pursue me this summer."

With the offers piling up for Lomomba, expect a heated recruitment for this Wisconsin athlete.
