Hearing he's a great kid(affable, polite, intelligent, etc.) from a wonderful family back in Jamaica. Like Moses Brown, raw but lots of upside. I always like ex-soccer playing big men. Usually more coordinated and much better footwork than the average raw big man. From someone(not me) who has seen them both play numerous times, Kofi more advanced than Moses at this point. I have never seen Kofi play. Curious to hear if anyone on here who has seen them both play can compare the 2.


Your post had me thinking today as I have never seen Kofi play .. So I asked around to some people who have and the consensus is he is not better than Moses Brown but he could get there .. Kid is pretty raw ( no doubt to inexperience with the game) .. Fwiw Arbitello is touting him as the next great big from NYC which is only right as he super hypes all of his players ( and rightfully so). I'm looking forward to seeing the kid this year :)


You mean the next great big from NYC after ADR?


To be fair to CTK, they got much more out of ADR than I have seen Molloy get from Brown. Now I know he was only a Sophomore and time will tell.

Kofi Cockburn (Christ the King '19) showing his impressive strength. Just backed down a player all the way from the perimeter for a lay in.

Kofi Cockburn (Christ the King '19) is dunking everything! Highly skilled big who takes advantage of smaller opponents in the post.

Sounds like Matt is guarding him. :)

Kofi Cockburn Is One to Watch
Beach Ball Classic
By Jamie Shaw

Walking onto the floor, you notice Kofi Cockburn immediately. He carries a menacing frame, with long arms and big hands. One the court, he also stands out however it is because of his game that you immediately take notice.

Cockburn, who stands as a 6’10” sophomore, has been in the United States for only a year and a half. The native of Jamaica is very nice and very humble kid. He speaks very well and takes time in carefully crafting his answers.

On the court Cockburn is a menacing presence on the block. Coming off of a leg injury, he wasn’t playing in the Beach Ball Classic at 100%, but still was able to show the glimpses of what he could do. In fact, in the final game of the week, a 1 point win over Providence High School (Florida), he showed flashes of a complete arsenal.

Cockburn says that he studies the likes of Tim Duncan and Hakeem Olajuwan. He is a very good athlete, but he also understands that patience is the key with the ball. He had 14 points on 4-4 shooting from the field and 6-8 shooting from the free throw line. He played within himself, didn’t do what he could not do, and did so at a nice pace.

His versatility on offense showed as well, not only did he go 6-8 from the free throw line but he also showed the ability to rip through and put it on the floor. Defensively, Cockburn says he needs to work on his shot blocking, as he realizes rim protection is a key to his development. He is a very good area rebounder, who grabs the ball with 2 hands at its highest peak. He finished the game with 8 rebounds in 25 minutes of play.

Cockburn’s recruitment is just starting to pick up. He claims offers from UConn, St John’s Seton Hall, VCU, UNLV, St Louis and others. He most recently visited UConn, as he says that UConn and St John’s are the schools who are showing him the most interest right now.

So far away from decision time, Cockburn also mentioned that he was listening hard to what South Carolina and Maryland had to say. From Jamaica and living in New York, Cockburn just wants to find the school where he feels the most comfortable.

One thing is for sure, Kofi Cockburn is soon to see his recruitment really get rolling. However, right how he is a humble kid just having fun getting better every day.

That game is going to be packed. Prefer to see the game at CTK.

You can't dream of a better name to go with legends Orvis and Beasty!
In fact, if he played during that time with Orvis he would have gotten a Beasty Cockburn. :silly:

Saw Kofi play tonight in a loss at Mollloy. Was in constant foul trouble and they mostly passed him the ball in the high post so he didn't score much. Threw down a massive dunk right before he fouled out. Has the body of a grown man.
