Battlefield sophomore Josh Oduro began a strong run of play in the summer, and has carried the momentum with him into the fall. It’s a pretty safe bet that the 6-foot-7 forward, who should play a key role on what many believe is one of the strongest teams in 6A this season, will continue to work hard and get better.
“Well I like to post up and attack from the wing and the high post,” Oduro said when asked to describe his game.
We saw Oduro a number of times over the course of the summer, both with Virginia Elite, and in various showcase events. Several things stand out about Oduro when you see him play, but you can’t ignore his significant ceiling given his strong work ethic and fundamentals. Oduro is a solid interior defender who actively protects the rim and rebounds effectively in traffic.
“Ball handling,” is something that Oduro says he is focused on improving at the moment.
Oduro is also known for having a strong record in the classroom. His current GPA is above a 3.6. Oduro claims interest from a handful of division one programs such as Wofford, UMass, and George Mason among others. What can coaches who are recruiting Oduro expect him to bring to their program at the next level?
“A lot of rebounding and scoring.”
