So I've known about the 2nd big man recruit for a while (mentioned it in another post), but since someone else has correctly guessed/speculated who it is I'll come out with it. Ojo Olalekan Michael from a prep school in Tennessee. He was here a month or so back at the same time Boris was here. He's 7'1 and is stout. Have no clue how good he is, but I know that he and Boris played a little with some of our guys, so the coaches must feel good about him. I also have no clue what the hold up is on his commitment.
The coaches sure do lobe them some Nigerians
Also, heard that Boris is an excellent shooter for a guy of his size and has a nice skill set. Was told that he and Kreft compared their standing reach and that he dwarfed Kreft. IIRC Krefts finger tips touched the bottom of his palm, much bigger difference than their 3 inch height.
I heard a little on the Nigerian too, but I'll keep my mouth shut until he signs.
Any film or stories or recruiting profiles? A quick google didn't find much but I didn't look very long.
Dude is the definition of a mystery recruit. He's off the grid. Very raw and hasn't been in the US long.
Heard about him from a buddy about 2 weeks ago....
Just thought I would share this:
"....I can't wait to be in college,... Can't wait ti play in the ACC...."
A pic inside(although it's not the best)
I take it there's no film of this dude?
There is, but it was confiscated by a Nigerian war lord en route to Chapel Hill and Lexington. Ham's got a guy that knows a guy down there.
So I take it we've got a good shot to land him then?
I've followed up a little and found out what the holdup is. Ojo's father is a Nigerian Prince whose family has been deposed by a rival. His wealth is strictly held in gold bullion and he needs to find a buyer in the United States before he can move the family to the US permanently.
If you are looking for a surefire investment and an opportunity to help out FSU, you can just wire his father the money via Western Union and he will bring the gold bullion to you.
From his facebook profile....already looks to be more filled out than Alabi ever was.

He does not have sick or deceased relative by any chance
Alabi looks like has put some muscle since being in Toronto, but he is still lanky.
He looks like a large human.
Anyone want to take a stab at the phonetic pronunciation of his name?
