West Texas CC forward, Jeffrey Uju has committed to Bowling Green..he played great at the All American @jucoshowcase in Dallas last week— Scott Golden (@HoopExchange) April 25, 2016
So, BG has a new '16 Basketball commit, Jeffrey Uju. Jeffrey is originally from Bolingbroke, IL, and went to Oak Hill Academy in VA, which is a big basketball training ground with about two dozen NBA players to its name. He played last year at Western Texas College (which is kind of funny, almost like we still have the Chris Jans recruiting grounds). He's 6'7" and shot 46% from 2FG and 3FG. He scored 7 PPG and had almost 6 RPG. Now, based on the stats, that was in 16 minutes per game, so it needs to be adjusted a little bit. I don't know what the deal is with the PT, except I've seen it before...sometimes JUCO teams distribute playing time very evenly.
He says he is in pre-med and wants to be a surgeon after he plays as a professional. He will have two years of eligibility.
Welcome to the Falcons, Jeffrey.
