Normal West has the top 2019 prospect in the state in Francis Okoro. Just imagine if potential high-major sophomore Quincy Ademokoya was still there with him? Ademokoya flashed major abilities early in his career before transferring to Dacula High School in Georgia for his sophomore campaign. This projectable long and lanky wing really impressed us with his athleticism, length, and ability to impact the game on both ends of the floor. He played with Meanstreets last spring flashing his ability. We caught up with the 2020 prospect to chat about his season in Georgia and recruitment.
The sophomore broke down his sophomore campaign.
“I’ve been playing really good. I’ve really expanded my from the last time you got a glimpse of me. Coming off my summer with Meanstreets and transitioning to Georgia I got a lot of work in and finished my summer strong picking up a lot of interest. Lots of schools came in to watch me workout for the upcoming season. Now that my season is rounding up I should be suited for a huge summer.”
He is making a major contribution to a quality team as a second year player on the high school level.
“I’m averaging approximately 12 points and 6 boards per game. Playing along Rivals Top 100 Brenden Tucker and along with some of our other pieces we are a very deep upperclassmen team with me being the only sophomore on the team. It’s hard to score a lot of points, but when I get going I can spark for 20 or 25 points on any given night.”
Ademokoya talked about the areas of improvement in his development.
“Lots of recruiters here say I’m the best shooter in the state in some cases. My jump shot has been way more consistent. My high school has really worked on me as a player and now puts me in the position where I can handle the ball and sometimes come off ball screens and really just developing me into a do it all type of player. My attitude when I get on the court is believing I’m the best player on the court. I play with such a swagger and type of confidence it’s hard to rattle me in late game situations.”
The rangy wing rattled off a long list of schools that have contacted either his high school or travel team coach. The list includes Georgia, Georgia Tech, Xavier, UConn, Illinois, Iowa State, DePaul, Tennessee, Alabama, Michigan, Florida, Houston, Tennessee Tech, Georgetown, UNLV, Mississippi State, Oklahoma State, UNC-Charlotte, UMass, Ohio State, and Texas A&M. To this point he holds one offer from DePaul. What does he like about the Blue Demons?
“I feel like they are in a good conference and play a lot of good competition.”
He told us there are several schools he wants to get out to for visits this spring and summer.
“Xavier, Florida, Michigan, and Illinois are for sure ones to reach out to and get more familiar with.”
He has already seen some of the schools nearby.
“I’ve been on campus at Georgia Tech and Georgia multiple times. I’ve been to Florida’s facility, but never set up any unofficial because of school and playing games on the weekend for my high school.”
This summer he will be playing with the Georgia Stars on the Nike circuit. He is ready to make some noise!
“This spring I’m looking forward to playing on the EYBL circuit and making a name for myself. Really separating myself from the rest of the competition and hopefully getting an invite to Nike Elite 100 and more camps.”
