er signing for St. John’s University in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I, Ghanaian Forward Bashir Ahmed has been on the receiving end of high praise including team Coach and NBA Hall of Fame inductee Chris Mullin.
The 6 foot 7 inch Forward who can also play at the Guard position, has been pointed out by trainers and teammates for his outstanding work ethic, egoless nature and care for others. On the court, his dynamic play which had him average 20.1 points, 8.1 rebounds and 2.2 assists in the lower division for Hutchinson Community College, has been of major notice.
“Watching him this summer and at junior college, there’s some things he does he’ll be able to do at any level,” “What he brings, we didn’t have” Mullin said in an interview with the New York Post.
According to the same source, a coach familiar with high school recruitment in the New York area went further to pin him down for an NBA spot in the coming years stating:
“I thought he was better than Isaiah Whitehead coming out of high school,” referring to the former Seton Hall star and Nets rookie guard. After two years learning from Chris Mullin and Mitch Richmond, I think he can end up being a lottery pick.”
The 22 year old is the youngest of nine siblings.
