Star forward for Hoops Odi Onyeka has joined Runhouse-Hoops team in Florida for the upcoming season, the club has confirmed on their official website.
The statement read:’ The Runhouse-Hoops team is pleased to announce that 6′ 8″ star forward Odi Onyeka has arrived in Sarasota, Florida and will be a member of Coach Reginald Bellamy’s State College of Florida’s junior college team this upcoming season.
“Air Oidi” was one of the best players on Coach Claude Thompson’s Cape Coast Hoops team this past season averaging 25ppg and 14 rpg. Having a wide range of skills enabled the very mobile player to play multiple positions (3/4/5).
‘‘Everyone involved is excited about seeing Oneyka play this season and he is already gaining interest from mid-majors’ the statement concluded.
Onyeka becomes the second player from Hoops to join the foreign legion following the departure of Samuel Ouedraogo to the Technical Careers Institute (TCI) in New York City. TCI plays at the D1 level of the NJCAA. The 6′ 8″ forward moved to the states last year and is playing in the RUNHOUSE 2010 Showcase.
