2019 Oscar Tshiebwe has been one of the most productive bigs at NBPA Top 100 Camp. He has tremendous size being 6’8 and tons of muscle and he is even getting stronger. In a game yesterday that I was watching he finished with 16 points and 13 rebounds while shooting 72 percent from the field. He is a beast around the basket and that has been showing here at camp.
He was really excited when he got the invite to attend the prestigious camp, “It is a really good camp, it has all the best players so I am so excited to be here and I have to do my best for my team to help them win so the NBA scouts can see me and everybody else and it is just a really good camp.”
On the recruitment side of things there are a few schools that he is hoping to visit in August. West Virginia has been somewhat the favorite for landing the big man and briefly touched on them.
“It is a good school, I know a lot about them and they have a really good defense.”
Recently Kansas offered him and he was extremely honored to get that offer, “It is a good school, it is a really great basketball program, they just made the final four which was good and I am looking forward to visiting there in August to learn more about them.”
Georgetown has good history with big men and Oscar could potentially follow that pipeline, “It is another good school and Patrick is a good coach, I have not been there yet but maybe in August I will go and visit.”
Two Big Ten programs are reaching out to Tshiebwe and he spoke highly on both of them,
“Indiana tells me that we really like you, they want me to keep doing what I am doing on the court and keep pushing it 100 percent all the time. They like how I run on the court and play defense. And they said if they like what they see from me in July then they might offer me.”
The other Big Ten school that is showing interest is Illinois, “I don’t know a lot about them but I will visit soon.”
