Several week ago I told you about a young man named Oscar Tshiebwe and that you should keep an eye on him as he enters his senior year of high school basketball. He’s a big man that hasn’t gotten the recognition of a James Wiseman or a Vernon Carey, but he’s awesome and you should pray to the recruiting gods that he one day becomes a Wildcat.
Well today, Tshiebwe finally got the love he deserves when 247Sports moved him up No. 19 overall in the Class of 2019. It was a 53-spot climb all the way up from his old ranking of No. 72. He also earned a fifth star by his name.
The new ranking puts Tshiebwe closer to where he should be amongst his peers because he’s an animal in the paint who is impossible to handle. Just ask James Wiseman. Tshiebwe gave him 24 and 13 in a head-to-head matchup back in July.
I want this guy as much as anyone.
