Coach Tracy Claeys' Take:

"Yoshoub is a kid we've been recruiting here for a few weeks. You have to watch his film, he's very explosive on the inside. Our only concern was how big he could get but after visiting with him and having him on a visit, he's going to be somebody who gets off the ball and be very disruptive. We believe he'll be able to put on the size he needs to to be a Big Ten player."
