Olu Still Sitting With 5 Schools

Olu Famutimi, an explosive 6-5, 205 pound shooting guard/swingman from Flint Northern H.S. in Flint, Mich., has five programs atop his list this summer.
Famutimi told the Insiders Report/Rivalshoops.com that Duke, Michigan State, Missouri, Arkansas and Louisville are currently at the head of the class. 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.
"I will probably narrow my list down after Las Vegas," Famutimi said. "I will probably narrow it down to two or three schools, and then make a decision before my high school season starts."
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.
"I told Arkansas that I am going to come back down in the fall, and Missouri -- I am going to check them out again," Famutimi said. "And then Duke of course, too."
Famutimi has had a chance to play at Duke the past few years as his Hurricanes squad has traveled to the Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions in the Raleigh-Durham triangle area.
A native of Toronto, Ontario, Famutimi averaged 23 point, 13 rebounds, three assists, two steals and four blocks per contest as a junior.
What makes Famutimi so dangerous are his combination of explosive athleticism and deft touch from beyond the three point arc. He's a hard player to keep in check, because he can do damage on the offensive glass or in transition.
In the classroom, Famutimi said he has compiled a 3.4 GPA and scored an 1120 on the SAT. Assuming that information is correct, he will qualify easily under current NCAA minimum standards for freshman eligibility.
