List Is Still Big For OSNA Big Man

Reporter Mike Sullivan has the story on John Riek of Our Savior New American ...

John Riek, a 7-foot-2 center from Our Savior New American in Centereach, New York, continues to have college coaches follow him around at events. Riek competed this past weekend at the Joe Brown Memorial tournament held on the campus of Seton Hall University.

Riek competed with the New York Elite, coached by Eric Jaklitsch and Chris Phillips. He showed the ability to make an impact at both ends of the court. There were scores of coaches at each of his contests.

DePaul, Georgia Tech, Pittsburgh, Florida, Syracuse, St. John's, Ohio State, Georgetown, Kentucky, and Connecticut have been the schools mentioned by Jaklitsch.

"There's no favorite right now," Jaklitsch said. "John is open. He's just focusing on the month of July."

Phillips said he believes Riek will also be at Our Savior New American this season too.
