5 Star Hoop Prospect looking at Wyoming

Great read from the Laramie Boomerang about San Diego Prep Star Angelo Chol and his recruitment.
Angelo Chol is 6'9 Junior out Hoover High School in San Diego. As a Sophomore he averaged 12.8 points, 13.2 rebounds and 9.6 blocks per game. Chol has narrowed down his list of possible schools down to 11.
Those schools include:
  • Alabama
  • Arizona State
  • UConn
  • Florida
  • Georgetown
  • Kansas
  • UNC*
  • UCLA
  • Virginia
  • Washington
  • Wyoming

*Every school has offered a scholarship except UNC

Now most folks would say that Wyoming has no chance of nabbing a Top 20 National talent like Chol but there are two factors that weigh heavily in the Cowboys favor.

1. JayDee Luster - the RS Soph Guard for the Cowboys attended the same High School as Chol and the two have a great relationship. This bond is very strong and Chol is expected to come visit Laramie on Nov. 11-13th to watch Luster make his debut with the Cowboys.

2. Diversity - Chol was born in Sudan and moved to San Diego at the age of 7. The Cowboys have a very diverse roster with several players that were born in Senegal, Mali and France. This culture could be very attractive to Chol when he chooses a school.

Though signing day is still a long ways away we will keep you updated on this story and any other developments for the 2011 recruiting class. Landing a player of this caliber could be a huge step for the growth of Wyoming Cowboy basketball.
