Florida State Signs Seven-Footer Michael Ojo
Florida State has signed 7-foot-1 center Michael Ojo.
Ojo is originally from Nigeria.
Ojo weighs 290 pounds and averaged 15 points, 14 rebounds and 5 blocks per game as a senior at Tennessee Temple High School in Chattanooga, Tenn.
“Michael has been playing basketball for only a few years and is a dedicated, hard-working young man who has a very high basketball ceiling,” said Tennessee Temple High school head coach Randy Lee. “While I don’t want to place unrealistic expectations on Michael, he is right now physically talented enough to play in the ACC – he only needs time to develop his understanding of the game of basketball. He has the ability to be a good rebounder and has a very imposing presence in the paint with his 7-foot-8 wingspan. Coach Hamilton and his staff not only have a great history of identifying talented post players but they have the patience to help them develop over time. Florida State and Coach Hamilton’s system are perfect fits for Michael and he will be a great addition to the Seminole program.”
