Mohamed Lo Has Big Plans For College

Reporter Brian Towey has the story of a player from New York making a decision ...

Mohamed Lo has found a home. The 6-foot-7 power forward from the Patterson School in Lenoir, North Carolina, signed a letter of intent with Toledo on Wednesday.

"I made the decision about two or three weeks ago after I came back from my visit at the school," said Lo. "I liked the school, where it's located. The players were good to me. Their style of play of play fits the way I play, and I like the conference."

Lo had also taken an official visit to South Florida.

Lo played his prep ball at Port Chester High School in Westchester County, and had also made stops at Monsignor McClancy High School in Queens and Martin Luther King High School in Manhattan. The native of Senegal came to the United States, via France, for his freshman year of high school at Martin Luther King.

A sturdily built four-man with some face-up skills, Lo said that his potential to have an impact on the glass made him attractive to the Toledo staff.

"Right now they're looking for some size," said Lo. "The reason they really wanted me was because of my defense and rebounding skills. Most of all, they're looking for someone who's a junkyard dog on the boards. That's what they're looking for me to do."

Mohamed ran with the New England Playaz in AAU ball in this summer, and had previously played with the New York Gauchos.
