Obokoh Pleased with Elite Camp

Chinonso Obokoh Is a local product with a lot of interest from Syracuse. The 2013 center out of Rochester (NY) has been on the Syracuse campus many times in the past. He visited again on the Wednesday to attend their elite camp. He spoke with CuseNation.com about the experience.

Syracuse will likely look to add a big in the 2013 class. One of their primary targets is Rochester (NY) Bishop Kearney center Chinonso Obokoh. He spoke with CuseNation.com shortly after attending the elite camp on Wednesdsy.

"It was great," Obokoh said. "They had a bunch of guys there. It was good. I spoke with Coach Jim Boeheim and Coach Mike Hopkins, both coaches. They talked to me about normal stuff. They were telling me it's a good school and everything. That's big for me. I think it's a great school. They were telling me how it would challenge me and how it would help me."

Obokoh had a chance to see Syracuse freshman DaJuan Coleman briefly, and spent most of his time hanging out with high school teammate Thomas Bryant. Bryant and Obokoh traveled there together for the elite camp.

Being on campus several times in the past, Obokoh says he continues to gain comfort with Syracuse every time he visits the campus.

"The first time I got here I didn't know anything bait Syracuse," he suggested. "As time goes on and I start going down there and being at camps like this one for example, that would make it feel more comfortable. Everybody there is great, especially the coaches. Also the students and the players."

Obokoh says he is looking to cut his list soon, and Syracuse is one of the schools he is considering. He has visited Syracuse much more than any other school to date.
