Junior Lomomba Talks Decision

Before Junior Lomomba (Memorial, WI) announced his decision many already speculated who was the front-runner. His five finalist were Cincinnati, Cleveland State, New Mexico State, UCLA and Washington State.

Lomomba has high-major game and its easy to understand that distinction if you take a look at his final list.

Out of his five finalist, Lomomba decided it was best to take his high-major game to the mid-major level. "Yes sir," he said of if he committed to Cleveland State. "I signed [my National Letter of Intent] today as well."

Cleveland State gets a huge steal in Lomomba. He had interest from all over the country and blossomed on the national stage. He is very known for his performance this summer where he locked down top-20 prospect and Providence commit Ricardo Ledo, who is widely regarded as one of the most explosive scorers in the country.

Along with great defense is a slashing guard-forward that is undeniable at the rim. His jump shot is still developing and once he starts hitting the three with consistency he can be really scary.

So what actually attracted Lomomba to Cleveland State? "[It was] a good fit and good situation to come into," he said. "They've done good in the past few years and just needed a little boost forward. I think the recruiting class coming in can give that extra boost."

Lomomba joins a four man class that includes forwards Malik London and Gary Akbar of Ohio along with Michigan guard Bryn Forbes.
