It was a busy day for Bryant Men’s College Basketball program, and a good day for the Bronx’s Cardinal Hayes boy’s high school hoops team, as the Owls offered two of the Cardinals’ juniors: Tobe Awaka and Tarique Foster, today VerbalCommits,com Tweeted,
This is both 6-foot-8 players’ first offer, and should get the ball rolling for both hoopsters whom many high school basketball insiders considered under-the-radar type of student-athletes up until this point. But not for much longer.
Foster, a wing, displays a nice touch on his jumper, and can also find the open man with a smooth, easy no-look pass, something you raely see from a big man.
Awaka is an agile forward with strong hands and nifty footwork around the basket.
The Bryant Bulldogs are 10-5 overall and 6-4 in Northeast Conference (NEC) action so far this season. Last year, the Owls posted a 15-17 mark and went 7-11 in NEC play.
