Team Zona 16s and 17s played in the gold circuit as well as other adidas affiliated events. This group performed at a high level, and I was able to directly observe them during the first live period in California. Below is a breakdown of their roster from the first live period.


Larry Olayinka 6’8 PF 2022 Birmingham High School

Olayinka plays with a high motor and has a lot of length. He makes a huge impact due to his uncoachables and effort. Offensively, he has soft touch around the rim and is a capable shooter.

JJ White JJ White 6'3" | SG Ironwood | 2021 State AZ 6’3 PG/SG 2021 Ironwood High School 

JJ is coming off another solid year at Ironwood and a commitment to Central Arizona Community College. Throughout July, he continued to shoot the basketball well while also taking on point guard and shooting guard duties. White’s toughness and college build will make him an immediate impact guy at the collegiate level.

Kevin Kogbara Kevin Kogbara 6'6" | PF Dream City Christian | 2021 State AZ 6’7 SF 2021 Dream City Christian

Kogbara is skilled and has size as well as strength. When he gets a rhythm, he is extremely dangerous due to his ability to score the basketball from all three levels.
