2022 F/C Zuby Ejiofor knows a thing or two about flying under the radar.  It is something that he has used a motivational tool to consistently improve on his game and not get caught up in the hype.  He also knows that eventually your game will speak for itself and the once unknown prospect will be national household name.

The 6-9 Garland High School big man has a natural feel for the game at his size.  He is very crafty around the basket and uses his strong frame to overpower smaller defenders.  Equipped with an extremely high motor and above average IQ for this stage of his career, the emerging big man finishes at the rim very well and can get it done with either hand.  His passing skills are still improving but does possess the ability to find open teammates when he gets doubled in the post, as well as great outlet passes to start the break.  One thing that sets him apart is his athleticism.  He loves to play above the rim and when his teammates find him in transition or half court sets with lobs the result is usually a highlight finish.  

From an improvement side the biggest jump has been his outside shooting.  He has extended his range over the last year and is now more comfortable shooting the three.  This is what makes him such an intriguing prospect in today’s era of basketball is that he’s a big athletic interior prospect with a tremendously high ceiling that’s showing flashes of taking that next step.  

Defensively, he’s an anchor on the floor.  He is vocal and active and does not take any plays off.  A max effort young man, he brings intangibles to the court along with effort, heart, and an ability to do all the little things including, but not limited to, being an exceptional rebounder.  Mix in solid agility and advanced instincts defensively in terms of altering and blocking shots and the mix is there on both ends of the court for a very special player big picture wise and schools are beginning to take notice.   

This past travel season he spent time with the Houston Hoops as well the program Beast Up and his play allowed him to grab the attention from TCU and Texas.  Both programs extended scholarship offers to him.  That’s just a start as you can expect his status to elevate substantially over the next 8-12 months as he’s one of the prized up and coming unheralded bigs in a loaded class of 2022 prospects in Texas.
