Over the last couple of weekends as DMV Live took place at DeMatha Catholic, a number of prospects helped boost their stock and establish a name for themselves within college circles. One of those players in the 2022 class was Bullis forward Adam Angwafo Adam Angwafo 6'7" | C Bullis | 2022 State MD . Angwafo is a 6-foot-8 forward who came in with little interest from programs at the next level, but left with catching the attention of low to mid-major Division I coaches.
Bullis finished the DMV Live period with a perfect 7-0 record. They executed on the offensive end and stayed together defensively in order to earn quality wins over opponents who many thought would have an advantage over them prior to tip-off.
“For me, it was just coming into this DMV Live knowing that I had to go 100 percent all the time,” Angwafo told Prep Hoops. “I was trying to get some looks from some college coaches and I think I played really good, so yeah.”
Bullis has stout guards who each can put the ball in the basket, facilitate and play make, but Angwafo is the much needed presence inside.
“Obviously I fill the big position, but I can stretch the floor as well. I really have to rebound and get in there to be scrappy on the boards. We went 7-0 and a lot of people were doubting us. We came out real strong and punched people in the mouth and we were just really good. I’m really proud of us.”
Angwafo told me that Penn, Loyola (MD) and a few Division III schools such as Stevenson and Hamilton have been reaching out to him the most since the first weekend.
“I can play multiple positions,” Angwafo said when asked to describe his game. “The big positions or even the wing. I’m going to do it all for you and give it all I got. If you want me to play a certain role, I’m going to do whatever it takes to fulfill that role to the fullest.”
Angwafo has been a part of the Team Thrill 17U UAA team that features some of the top prospects in his respective class such as Jarace Walker, Michael Moore and Noah Batchelor. He used that this spring to hone in on his overall skillset and make improvements.
“Those guys are really good. They play really hard and really physical. Obviously they’re really athletic, so playing against those guys really inspires me to get in the gym and compete against those guys.”
What are improvements that Angwafo will continue to make over the summer?
“Just overall everything, but really my three-point shooting and becoming more consistent. Definitely handling the ball a little more and becoming more versatile.”
