Another prospect that cashed in during the spring and summer NCAA Evaluation period was 2018 Ironwood High School graduate, 6-foot-7 prep forward Ajang Aguek. After seeing very little college recruitment throughout his high school career, Aguek played through the spring and summer and raised eyebrows with his play and high motor.
Aguek had a strong summer performance especially for himself, but his best performance came in this summer's Fab 48 event when Aguek gained a lot of recruiting attention from college coaches. I received numerous phone calls regarding Aguek this summer, and now it has paid off for him, as he has received his first division-I offer.
This week, Aguek received an offer from Idaho State University - a tremendous accomplishment for the aspiring prospect with loads of athleticism, length and a relentless motor.
Aguek played this spring and summer for The Factory, a program led by long-time successful club coach Kenny Mullins. Mullins has been known for raising the recruiting stock of numerous Arizona prospects over the years, through his hard work and dedication to his players and the process. The same has now happened for Aguek.
Aguek will not attend college though this fall, and rather will elect to go the post-graduate route. He will look to land at Taylor Made Prep this fall, where he will join his fellow club teammate Cedric Bridges at the program. Taylor Made Prep is a prep basketball program located in the West Valley and led by head coach Jamal Edwards.
I will continue to follow the recruitment and progress of Aguek this fall and prep season, and will bring you any recruiting updates regarding Aguek as his recruitment continues to unfold.
Arizona Hoop Review Scouting Report: Aguek is a very intriguing prospect with excellent length of body and a lot of true-upside to his frame. He is still growing a great deal physically and has excellent potential over time. He likes to play on the perimeter, where he is still developing a great deal. Can score inside and out, but is at his best now from around the basket, until he becomes more consistent from longer ranges on his shot. A very active defender and rebounder, that uses his lengthy frame to make plays, and has an excellent overall motor on both ends of the floor. A good shotblocker. Runs the floor very well and is a good finisher. A big-time sleeper with loads of potential for the future. With continued hard work, he should develop nicely over the next 1 to 2 years.
