With four offers already in tow, Sunrise Mountain senior Steven Adeyemi has options, and he’ll wait until after his senior season to choose his school.
The 6-foot-3 shooting guard currently has Utah State-Eastern, Central Christian, Providence (MT) and Air Force offers. He’s seeing interest come in from D2 Adams State (CO).
“For me, I just want to go to a school where I can make an impact and play right away, and that’s really it for me. I’m trying to get out of Vegas,” said Adeyemi.
“I’ve visited Air Force, and I’ve visited Utah-State Eastern, and I’ll visit the rest after the high school season is over.”
His thoughts on Air Force: “I like it because it’s organized and the coaching staff is a very good one,” said Adeyemi.
And Utah State-Eastern: “It’s a pretty good school to be at, you can really stay focused. There’s not a lot to do, just mostly basketball and go to school,” he said.
A playmaker with a knack for scoring at the rim, Adeyemi defined his skill-set to PHNV.
“As a guard, I can score and I can pass and find my teammates, I can see the floor pretty well. And I can slash and score at the rim that way,” he said.
“I’m just working on everything, all-around to be a better player.”
Now, with his senior season in full-swing, it’s his time to lead. Adeyemi has been starting since he was a sophomore.
“This year, I’m more of a leader, and I need to get guys going. Right now we’re 6-2 and I’m averaging about 21 points per game, and eight rebounds and six assists,” said Adeyemi.
“I’d like to make all-state, and also make it far in the playoffs. The goal is to make it to state this year, for the first time in school history.”
