Abdi Lidonde, a 6-4, 185-pound shooting guard from St. Andrew's High School in Barrington, Rhode Island, had a solid ABCD camp this past week in Teaneck, New Jersey. But is it enough to convince a high major to offer him a free ride?
"We shall see," said his coach, Mike Hart. "If a school like Stanford offers him, he will go there. He wouldn't mind getting a great education from a place like Stanford."
Hart said Lidonde is still open. Previous schools like Providence, Missouri, Boston College, Miami of Ohio, Kent State and Bowling Green have been mentioned too.
Lidonde is well worth watching in the class of 2003. Lidonde has great range on his jumper and is improving each month with his overall game. He has a nice pullup jumper and continues to show more consistency in his jumper.
"I am going to see who is interested in me this summer and then think about taking some visits," Lidonde said. "I don't have a leader right now. But the schools on my list are even. I like them all. They are all good schools to go for academics and athletics."
Other schools such as Princeton, Davidson, William & Mary, Seton Hall and Notre Dame are also of interest to Lidonde.
