 Wonder if Obekpa becomes more prominent possibility with Katin off the board. We'll see.

Love this kids shot blocking ability-would be great alongside Pelle or interchangeable for defensive purposes.

Per Zags....

“He’s one of the best interior defenders in our entire country, regardless of class,” Jaklitsch said. “He’s just as good as [Nerlens] Noel.”

 Per Zags Uconn offered. From what I read he sounds like a Uconn kid. They pump out great shot blocking centers.

From what I can tell.... Other than both players being pretty athletic there are really no comparisons. Gathers is a brute, muscular kid who uses his strength and size on both ends of the floor. Basically, Gathers can bring it on both ends.

It seems like Obekpa, at this moment, is a heckuva shotblocker and a pretty good rebounder at this moment. Those seem to be his positives, according to most recruiting guru's. His offensive game seems to be a definite work in progress. He's someone I'm sure our staff will keep their eyes on, though.

After Kyle commits I would love to use the last ship on this kid.
I think he will pay huge dividends in a few years and would have the time to properly develop at sju.
