Willie Atwood, a 6-8 forward at Connors State (OK), has set up two official visits. Atwood, who is one of the most sought after 2014 JUCO prospects left on the board, will take an official visit to Iowa this weekend and will visit Florida State on April 10. Atwood can take up to four official visits this spring and is looking to schedule two more visits. He averaged 20.8 points and 9 rebounds per game this season while shooting nearly 58% from the field. Atwood has the ability to score the ball around the rim and step out and attack slower post defenders off the bounce. Auburn, Arizona State, Virginia Tech and many others are trying to get Atwood in for one of his final two visits.
Akolda Manyang, a 7’0 center at Indian Hills CC, is now being actively recruited by Kansas. Manyang, who is one of the top 2015 prospects in the JUCO ranks, has the ability to change the game on both ends because he can block and alter shots and score the ball around the rim. He is continuing to develop low post moves on the offensive end and can get up and down quickly in transition for his size. Oklahoma has been heavily recruiting Manyang during his freshman year. He will continue to pick up interest and offers.
Cinmeon Bowers, a 6-7 forward at Chipola College who was recently released from his NLI at Florida State, is beginning to see his recruitment pick back up. South Carolina, Auburn and Memphis are the first schools to get involved with Bowers since his recruitment opened up. Look for more schools to continue to get involved over the next few weeks.
