Praise for NMH's Edosomwan at NBPA Camp

Future Northfield-Mt. Hermon forward Zena Edosomwan was among the most impressive players this week at National Basketball Players Association's Top 100 Camp in Charlotte, N.C.

This past March, following his senior season at Harvard-Westlake High (Studio City, Calif.), the 6-foot-8 Edosomwan committed to Harvard over scholarship offers from UCLA and USC. He will first do a post-graduate season for coach John Carroll at Northfield-Mt. Hermon before enrolling at Harvard in the fall of 2013.

Today on Basketball Recruiting Nation, analyst Reggie Rankin has high praise for the big man.

To read Reggie's full take, CLICK HERE (Insider only). Below is an excerpt:



Edosomwan is a very strong post player who runs the floor well and attacks the basket with great force. The Harvard commit is a great area rebounder and any guard that attempts to knock the ball out of his hands risks dislocating a shoulder. He finishes drop-off passes above the rim with power and drop steps through contact like a hot knife through butter. Edosomwan also displays a nice soft touch and body control around the rim, sets rock solid screens and plays with great energy and effort on both ends. Edosomwan will need to continue to hone his skills and develop his post moves, but his upside is scary.

"My strength is my aggressiveness. I can always control my effort. I need to continue to work on my versatility and conditioning," he said.

Edosomwan doesn't complain about touches but makes the most of the ones he gets. The big fella knows what he is and excels at it. He will be a force from the second he starts to compete in the Ivy League, not to mention the elite education he will receive. I think the future is extremely bright for Edosomwan on and off the court.
