Yes, true


He is another Sudanese kid that Greg Willis from the Colorado Hawks has helped bring into Colorado for High School. I was told that he is considered the #1 8th grade big in America. 6-10 and really long. As you might expect he is pretty raw, but he has held his own in summer events playing up at the 16U and 17U level all summer. When he plays his age (14U) it is ridiculous. He averages about 15 blocks a game.

The reason he is at Lutheran (3A school I beleive) is because the public schools are not allowing international kids on student visas to enroll anymore, or at least not like they use to. DPS and CCSD wont take them at all. Private schools are really the only choice and the bigger schools like Regis and Mullen have proven to be difficult for these kids to assimilate into both socially and academically, thus the smaller private schools are the best landing spot for these kids.
