Guy Ngarndi didn't need to score tons of points this summer to show that he has the potential to be a high major prospect.
A native of the Cameroon, Ngarndi suited up this summer for the Derek Smith All-Stars at the adidas Big Time Tournament in Las Vegas. And while Rajon Rondo, David Cornwell and Ross Neltner were racking up most of the points for that team, Ngarndi kept the opposition from scoring.
A quick and explosive 6-7, 210 pound power forward from Western H.S. in Louisville, Ky., Ngarndi runs the floor swiftly and challenges tons of shots on the defensive end. While he didn't show much of an offensive game in Las Vegas, he displayed some tools that other players in the Class of 2003 simply don't possess.
Ngarndi told Rivalshoops.com that Western Kentucky, Appalachian State, Pepperdine, San Francisco and San Diego State are the colleges showing the most interest in him this fall.
He's also had some contact with Louisville, as he's a frequent visitor to the UL campus who engages in pick up games with the Cardinal players.
Ngarndi said he's been lifting weights every day since school began, and has added 10 pounds to his frame since the last time we saw him in Las Vegas.
He's only been in the United States for about six months, so there could be some academic hurdles for him to clear in order to be eligible at a Division I program.
He is going to take the ACT for the first time in October, so he can't take any official visits until he posts a score.
