Edosomwan impresses at NBPA Camp


CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Class of 2013 PF/C Zena Edosomwan (North Hollywood, Calif./Northfield Mt. Herman), a 6-foot-8, 250-pound enforcer who takes no prisoners when he goes to work in the lane, has shined at the NBPA Top 100 Camp.

Edosomwan is a very strong post player who runs the floor well and attacks the basket with great force. The Harvard commit is a great area rebounder and any guard that attempts to knock the ball out of his hands risks dislocating a shoulder. He finishes drop-off passes above the rim with power and drop steps through contact like a hot knife through butter. Edosomwan also displays a nice soft touch and body control around the rim, sets rock solid screens and plays with great energy and effort on both ends. Edosomwan will need to continue to hone his skills and develop his post moves, but his upside is scary.

"My strength is my aggressiveness. I can always control my effort. I need to continue to work on my versatility and conditioning," he said.

Edosomwan doesn't complain about touches but makes the most of the ones he gets. The big fella knows what he is and excels at it. He will be a force from the second he starts to compete in the Ivy League, not to mention the elite education he will receive. I think the future is extremely bright for Edosomwan on and off the court.
