Xavier Recruiting Watch: Junior Etou

Breakout star Junior Etou, a 6’8 forward for the Knights of Bishop O’Connell High School, is reportedly close to signing with the University of Miami. According to the Miami Herald, The Democratic Republic of Congo native is  also considering Kansas, Arizona, West Virginia, Maryland, Xavier, Temple and Clemson.

On paper, Etou is only a three star recruit, but he’s taken off since becoming an upperclassman. He’s a 6’8 225 forward who can  reportedly shoot well and block shots.
Regardless, a guard-heavy team like Xavier would benefit from the addition of another big body to replace the prolific Travis Taylor. With Philmore and Stainbrook slated to clog the paint, Etou would add depth to an area it’s recently lacked.
