Virginia Academy (VA) center Oluwasegun Durosinmi is a 6-foot-9 student-athlete that has been the center of attention for plenty schools in the past few weeks.
He has offers from Georgetown, Florida, George Washington and Mount St. Mary’s have offered him so far, with James Madison and Temple, among others recruiting him as well.
“Some of the coaches say that I got good touch around the basket and they like how I score the ball down low,” Durosinmi said.
With Covid-19 and not being able to play his junior season due to injury, Durosinmi hasn’t seen the amount of opportunities that he deserves. But with a full senior season of hoops left, he has the opportunity to gain more opportunities down the road and he’s been preparing for that moment.
“I think [the pandemic] has been a blessing in disguise,” he explained. “Because I’ve been able to work on my rehab and focus on my game more and more.”
So far, he’s working on improving his offensive game. His defensive game is there, and has been for a while, so the focus following his injury has been to work on offense out to 15-feet.
“I’ve improved my shooting and my movement and stuff like that, and I’m working on my catch and shoot,” he said. “I’ve been working on my back to basket game too but I’m also working on my face up game and my shot.”
Mount St. Mary’s has recently gotten him on zoom for a call that resulted in a scholarship, while Georgetown assistant coach Robert Kirby has remains in contact on-and-off.
