COLLEGE/UNIVERSITY SULEIMAN BRAIMOH SIGNED WITH: Suleiman signed a letter of intent with Rice University. He also considered Bucknell, Lafayette, and Furman.

BRIAN TOWEY'S VIEW OF SULEIMAN BRAIMOH'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: The extra year proved fortuitous for its competitive gain and development, as well as for the physical growth it allowed.

He's a lengthy forward with a good motor, active and versatile. He can step out and knock down the mid-range jumper, get out in transition, and is active around the rim. He's got a nice upside and down the line might be able to spend some time on the wing.

CONCLUSION: The extra year was a major plus for Braimoh's development, especially around the basket. He looked more comfortable and effective in the the paint.
