Coming into the ABCD camp, Olu Famutimi was regarded as one of the best players in the country. He emphasized that statement by pumping in 25 points to help his team win a pool game at the ADIDAS camp in Teaneck, New Jersey.
Famutimi also grabbed six rebounds and hit two of two from beyond the three-point line. Olu is a player that moves very well from side to side and can free up his shot by either moving or dribbling.
Olu, an explosive 6-5, 205 pound shooting guard/swingman from Flint Northern H.S. in Flint, Mich., continued to state that Duke, Michigan State, Missouri, Arkansas and Louisville are currently at the top of his list. He also is still considering Michigan, North Carolina and Southern California.
In recent weeks, Famutimi attended basketball camps at both Missouri and Arkansas, where he was accompanied by Michigan Hurricanes program director Chris Grier.
Olu told Russ Blake that the list will be narrowed after the July evaluation period concludes.
Famutimi will attend the adidas Big Time Tournament in Las Vegas from July 22-26, and then will play in another tournament in California with the Hurricanes before returning back to Michigan.
A native of Toronto, Ontario, Famutimi averaged 23 point, 13 rebounds, three assists, two steals and four blocks per contest as a junior. He is an exciting player to watch, worth the price of admission. He is a great athlete but so much more than just an athlete. He is a player who has many skills which allow him to score from anywhere on the court.
