Fresh of his most recent offer from St. Louis University, we were able to talk with junior Ola Ajiboye of Von Steuben High School in Chicago and Team RWA. In addition to St. Louis University, he has also been offered by Chicago State and UIC. 

When asked what he likes about the schools that have offered him, Ajiboye said “UIC is beneficial regarding distance because it’s very close to home and they have a great program. Also, St. Louis has a great winning program in the Atlantic 10 Conference which I could fit in at.”

As well to his three offers, Detroit, Florida Atlantic, North Dakota, Southern Illinois, Temple, Toledo, and UC-Davis have all been in touch with him recently. While Ajiboye doesn’t have any visits planned, he would like to visit North Dakota, St. Louis, and Toledo in the near future. 

When asked what he is looking for in a school, Ajiboye replied “I’m looking for a school I could easily adapt to. A diverse and safe environment for my family to visit anytime. A strong communication and relationship with my coach and teammates.”

Ajiboye is a lengthy 6’8” forward that excels on both ends of the court. He has the size, length, and agility to shut down the interior but can also defend wings and forwards on the perimeter.  Around the basket he is a skilled rim protector that blocks shots at a high rate with his great length. Ajiboye is an active rim runner, strong finisher around the basket, and has a developing jumper from the outside. “I have been improving on my shot a lot. Countless hours in the gym perfecting my shot.”

For his junior season, Ajiboye has some lofty goals. “For my upcoming high school season is to go down state and city. Also, to put Von (Steuben) on the map.”
