Trevor Mbakwe was a man on a mission at the Boo Williams Invitational. The 6-foot-7 forward from Sibley High School in Mendota Heights, Minn., was one of the better big men in the tournament field and started his spring off on the right foot.
Mbakwe didn't lack for effort as the pigeon-toed junior went to work against the likes of Gary Johnson. The four-star forward was a shot-blocking machine against the Alabama Lasers and dunked everything he touched against the Houston Hoops, according to eyes that were in the gym for that game.
After enjoying a fruitful year in the Land of a Thousand Lakes, Mbakwe said he is holding offers from Michigan, Georgetown, Marquette, Florida, Minnesota and Miami. He said he is still waiting to see what school jumps out as a definitive leader.
"All of the schools that are recruiting me are great schools and they've been following me for a long time," Mbakwe said. "I really feel like it's a win-win situation no matter where I go."
"I'd really like to make a decision before my senior year," Mbakwe said.
Mbakwe and his Howard Pulley teammates will be back in action at the Kingwood Classic in two weeks in Houston.
