Will Big Man Sign With Tigers Today?

One of the top unsigned bigmen left in the 2011 basketball recruiting class talks to ShowMizzou.com about his plans to sign today and where the Missouri Tigers stand in the mix

ShowMeMizzou.com spoke to 2011 C Lekan Ajayi, 6'11" 235 Winston-Salem (NC) Quality Education Academy regarding his recruitment.

Olalekan (Lekan) Ajayi, a native of Lagos, Nigeria, told ShowMeMizzou.com that he plans to sign a Letter of Intent on Wednesday, April 20th. Ajayi has received scholarship offers from Arizona, Auburn, Florida, Loyola Marymount, Miami, Missouri, Oklahoma, Seton Hall, Virginia Tech, Tennessee, Wake Forest, and Wyoming.

"I'm signing (on Wednesday)," said Ajayi. "I'm going to decide between Wyoming and Missouri."

Ajayi visited Wyoming a little over a week ago, but has yet to visit Missouri. He said that he has researched Missouri on the internet, and that not having visited Missouri "doesn't really matter".

Ajayi is a very strong, athletic, and physical post player, who rebounds above the rim, and is a force on the defensive end.

ShowMeMizzou.com will continue to follow Olalekan Ajayi's recruitment.
