*Sammy will also play with the Boys Club of New York under Sean Atkins

POSITION: Small Forward

CLASS: 2008, A senior

COLLEGE INTERESTS: Holy Cross, Siena, Virginia Tech

STRENGTHS IN SAMMY'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: Sammy has shown the ability to play both forward positions. I like his size too. It enables him to handle smaller players around the rim.

AREAS TO IMPROVE: Post moves, defensive presence

EVALUATION: Sammy is a very versatile player. He showed he can utilize his handle to make moves past defenders and create his shot. As he becomes more balanced in his game, he can be an impact player on the college level. The evaluation reports have come when he has played for Sean Atkins' Boys Club of New York team. Atkins does a terrific job of coaching these players and Obetoh is a big part of their success.
