Four Schools Recruiting Junior Lomomba Hard

Posted by CoHoops DeAnte Mitchell
Last summer, in the AAU circuit, Junior Lomomba really opened eyes with his athleticism and versatility. The Madison Memorial H.S. (WI) product stands 6-foot-5 and has shown flashes of playing the one, two and three.

In the 2010 FIBA U17 World Championships, Lomomba really showcased his ability to attack the opposition off the dribble and run in transition playing for Team Canada.

More impressively was his ability to lead Madison Memorial to a Division I State Championship, while averaging 17 points and 6.1 rebounds per game.

After a year like that, Lomomba caught the eye of many high profile coaches.

"Baylor, Cincinnati, Iowa, Indiana State, Kansas, Kansas State, Michigan, Michigan State, Nevada, New Mexico State and West Virginia," he said of his schools of interest.

Many schools are certainly new to the mix but two familiar names have stuck with Lomomba: Iowa and Baylor.

Lomomba holds offers from Baylor, Cincinnati, Indiana State, Iowa, Nevada, New Mexico, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Xavier.

But four schools stand out the most to Lomomba. "The schools that are recruiting the hardest so far are, New Mexico State, West Virginia, Nevada and Baylor."

Right now, Lomomba is wide open and everyone is an option. But he did plan on trimming his list. "I'm looking forward to cutting down my list by the end of the summer," Lomomba said.
