West Coast Team Offers New York Forward

Scout.com's Brian Towey has the latest information on a native from Jamaica, New York who recently received a scholarship offer from a West Coast school ...

Afam Muojeke, a 6-foot-5, 185 pound small forward and native of Jamaica, Queens, is spending his second year at Genesis One Christian School in Mendenhall, Mississippi.

The former student at John Bowne High School in Flushing, New York, was originally a member of the class of 2005. According to Genesis One coach Victor Evans, Muojeke has made strides defensively since his arrival at the school last fall, and has a high ceiling to his game.

"He's grown so much in the last year," said Evans. "Especially on defense. He was a liability on defense when he first got here. He's playing hard on "D", driving to the basket, and he's still shooting it well."

Muojeke has picked up interest from Fresno State, Colorado, Rhode Island, Cincinnati, St. Peter's, Ole Miss, SMU, Florida Atlantic, and Army. He claims an offer from Fresno State.

"I'm open right now," said Muojeke. "I'm going to visit Colorado in early November. That will be my first visit."

Evans said they are still in the process of setting up visits for Afam, and expects him to visit Colorado, Fresno State, and SMU.

A long-limbed wing who can patrol the passing lanes, get out in transition, and slash to the rim, Evans feels that Muojeke's game still has room for growth.

"He hasn't even scratched his potential yet," said Evans.

Muojeke played with the New York Skyriders and New York Panthers on the AAU circuit. He's played with Team Real Scout at the IS8 League in Queens this fall."
