Bobcat Recruit: Justin Omogun


omogunheadI have heard the Bobcat coaching staff is recruiting rising star Justin Omogun. Omogun is originally from New York where he played his sophomore year, but moved to Spring Valley high school near Las Vegas for his junior year. He is listed at 6-7 or 6-8 depending on where you look and played the center and power forward position in high school.

During his sophomore season at Prospect Heights high school in New York he averaged 8 points and 8 rebounds a game. It sounds like, though, he has really taken a liking to basketball in Nevada given that his high school stats are listed as 22.5 points and 15.7 rebounds and 4 blocks a game at Spring Valley. I think those stats are a little inflated, as best I can tell looking over 8-9 box scores it appears that 16 points and 10 rebounds might be closer, ……. but who knows.   The one thing I know for sure he is a double double, guy who can also collect block shoots in a hurray.

omogunWhile primarily playing the post position in high school it appears that he is playing quite a bit this summer for his AAU team at the small forward spot.

Omogun is an outstanding athlete, who can jump out of the gym, but is still considered to be a little raw as far as basketball skills go. I am told he was pretty much unknown outside of Nevada previous to this summer, but once again if the above stats are correct I find that hard to believe. He has had some really nice games this summer and has gathered wide variety of recruiting interest. I hear Montana State has offered him but he is also receiving interest from UCLA, Arizona State, Colorado State, and Weber State, but I do not know what the interest level is of these schools.

Based on what I have read and heard the kid reminds me of Josh Huestis a little. Roughly the same size, a kid who played a lot on the interior in high school but wants to move outside more in college, and someone who has really improved his stock this summer. I do not think the Omogun is quite as skilled as Josh, but I think he is a little more athletic.

Here is a write up on Omogun and his AAU team from yesterday.
