God Gift's brother seems to have potential in class of 19;
Three "bigs" the catch-all phrase for this generation for either posts or players who are, physically “big” – who impressed Saturday night were Marvin Price (Hyattsville, MD, DeMatha), Precious Achiuwa (Bronx Our Saviour Lutheran) and Jason Murphy (Marriotsville, MD, Applegate Christian).
The 6-4, 210-poundish and left-handed Price rebounded as aggressively and effectively as anyone I saw Saturday and also used impressive skill with the ball in his hands on the offensive end, as well.
The 6-7 Achiuwa also did a lot of mopping up, offensively, inside the lane but also got by more than just one defender off the dribble and to the rim.

Precious Achiuwa: A 6'6" 2019 small forward from Our Savior Lutheran in the Bronx, Achiuwa showed a good three-point shot for his age. A fluid athlete, Precious Achiuwa showed an ability to score at all three levels, but primarily played on the wing. He's better, right now, at shooting off of the dribble. Achiuwa demonstrated a very competitive streak and a good ability to take what the defense offered.
A versatile defender, Achiuwa primarily stayed with the opposing twos and threes. The freshman showed substantial upside, as he continues to develop his thin body, handle, and mid-range game. Achiuwa's older brother, God's Gift Achiuwa, played for St. John's.
