Elite 2013 Prospect Cuts List

The four-star, 2013 prospect, Semi Ojeleye, has trimmed down his list of suitors...

One of the most productive and heavily recruited players in the 2013 class is Ottawa (Kan.) High School native Semi Ojeleye. Running with Mo-Kan Elite on the Nike EYBL Circuit, Ojeleye has drawn praise for his physical and intelligent style of play, now he has decided to narrow down his recruitment.

It wasn't easy for Ojeleye to cut down his list of suitors, but the academically and athletically motivated prospect was able to at least trim his list of schools down to 11.

"In no order I am still considering Duke, Arizona, Stanford, UCLA, Indiana, Wisconsin, Kansas, Kansas State, Oregon, Illinois, and Missouri," said Ojeleye.

Some of those schools such as Missouri and Wisconsin have been involved in Ojeleye's recruitment for a while, others like Duke and Illinois are new to the party. However after talking things over with his family and coaches, Ojeleye just felt those 10 offered him the best opportunity to continue his basketball and academic future.

"I talked about the schools with my coaches and they said these are the ones that would benefit me the most," said Ojeleye.

For now Ojeleye will continue to do his homework on all the schools on his list, and hopes to continue to make visits to gain as much information as he can about all of his potential suitors.

Currently Ojeleye is ranked as a four-star prospect and the No. 49 player in the nation, but the potential is definitely there for him to rise in the rankings.
