He's from Canada and apparently reclassified from class of 2022. Can't imagine that would happen for a walk on.

Apparently this news is two weeks old and slipped by everyone.

That's a scholarship player.

Assuming the kid from Findlay is not on scholarship, we would have an open scholarship with Preston going pro, right?

Boals is killing it...


I've seen crazier things happen.

Hard to find a lot of info on him. One tweet I see from June 18 said he took visits to Northwestern Missouri State and Nova Southeastern.

Visits to Northwestern Missouri State and Nova Southeastern doesn't seem to complement "Boals is killing it. . ."

Once a Bobcat, always a Bobcat...

Just can't seem to find much out about this guy. Looked for stats, rankings, evaluations, heck even full games with his teams... There just isn't much out there. The only time I can remember knowing this little about a recruit was when Ryan Taylor came in under Saul. Let's hope that it's a good sign.

Watched his 9th grade, 10th grade and 11th grade highlights. You can see he is a decent shooter during his freshman and sophomore years but really came into his own his junior year, athletically speaking. I would really be interested to see what his stats were with regards to 3pt shooting...

That said,
Welcome Olumide!

Go Bobcats!

Edit: Actually, I did find some games from his High School. (Bishop O'Byrne Bobcats) Who knows what the competition level is in this game but, Olumide got almost all his points from outside of 8' so, he wasn't just getting his points at the rim.

I like what I see in the video. Of course, you're supposed to, it's a highlight reel.

What stands out to me is his defense. Look at the guys who have come and gone and you will see they were just not good defenders. Zach Butler, Rodney Culver, Ellis Dozier, Khari Harley and even Wad (while blocking shots was cool he was pretty weak). Our current roster definitely has some length now to play with defensively with Ezuma, Clayton and now Olumide. Miles isn't afraid to D up and if Carter is healthy he is solid too. Nice defensive addition!!

Saw a tweet that noted he turned 17 this year, which lines up with him reclassifying from next yearís class. Also have found him listed at 6-4 many places so sounds like he is still growing...

Jason Preston disagrees. LoL.

As others have said, video looks good. Looking forward to seeing him in person. Gonna feel like a long wait until November to see this team and the new guys.






Can somebody hit a pull up jumper for me?.....

NW Missouri State would be middle of the pack in the MAC.

People forget that the SEC stands for Southeastern Conference which means Nova Southeastern is a more natural fit than Texas or Oklahoma.

He's with the team, but no listing on the roster or even an announcement of his signing.
