UPDATED PROFILE: Afam Muojeke

HEIGHT: 6-foot-6

POSITION: Small Forward

PREP SCHOOL Genesis One Christian School in Mendenhall, Mississippi

COLLEGE OF CHOICE: Wyoming of the Mountain West Conference

AFAM'S REASONS WHY HE CHOSE WYOMING: "My relationship with the head coach was key. Coming out of Genesis, coach Schroyer recruited me the hardest out of Fresno State. He really sees a bright future in me as we both come in fresh into a great program."

OTHER SCHOOLS MUOJEKE CONSIDERED: Pepperdine, UTEP, Southern Mississippi, Tennessee-Chattanooga, and Cleveland St.

BRIAN TOWEY'S VIEW OF AFAM'S INDIVIDUAL GAME" A late-blooming wing player with a rangy frame and reliable jump shot, Muojeke had come on strong this season, his second at Genesis, and had posted two 40-point games at the NACA Championships in Dayton, Tenn., in early March.

NEW YORK ROOTS: Afam went to John Bowne High School in Flushing, New York before deciding to prep.
