Four standing out to John

THE RIVALS150: 2016 | 2017
Champlin (Minn.) Champlin Park power forward Theo John is off to a
terrific start to his junior season. The Rivals150 prospect is currently
averaging 20 points, 10 rebounds and 3 blocks per game and has his team off to a
5-0 start.
Iowa, Marquette, Minnesota, Oklahoma,
Texas Tech and more have made the trip up to Minnesota so far this
season to get a look at the athletic, 6-foot-9 power forward.
We asked John to break down what he likes about each of the schools heavily
involved with him right now.
Iowa: "They are having a good season. I haven't seen many of their games, but I
like their style of play. Their coaches are really nice guys."
Marquette: "They are doing well. I have a good friend on the team and he's been
giving me the scoop on the team and the coaches. I like what I've heard."
Minnesota: "They are a good program. They are working to get better, but I can
see the improvements. They are good guys, and they off to a good start in
becoming what they want to be."
Oklahoma: "They have done really well. They are ranked really high right now.
They are doing their thing. I like their style of play. They like to run the
floor. They seem like a good program. I like the coach."
John plans to wait until his senior year to make a decision, but will likely
trim his list towards the end of next summer after the travel season comes to an
end. He'll be playing with Howard Pulley in the Nike EYBL.
Oklahoma appears to have caught John's attention in a big way with the success
they are having early this season, but it's going to be a fight for the Sooners
to pry him away from Minnesota. With a successful season in the EYBL, there
could always be more schools trying to get involved with him as well.
