Default BU recruit- 2017 Ra Kpedi

Bradley is reported to be recruiting 2017 forward Ra Kpedi, a 6'7" power (listed some sites as 6'9") forward at Lawrence North HS in Indianapolis. He already has an offer from IUPUI, and is starting to get interest from several other mid-major schools..

once touted as a potential high major player....
Ra Kpedi from Indianapolis, finally verbals to Vermont...
The higher offers never materialized and largely because of the difference between the high school & college games...
Touted as a 6-9 low post player, if you watch video, his game is more like a quick, but very slender 6-7 or maybe 6-8 guy who shies away from contact. In high school a skinny kid can put up good numbers in the post even if he has no jump shot...
You could watch 20 minutes of his highlight videos and he never once even attempts a shot from more than 1-2 feet from the basket.
but at the college level I suspect the recruiters doubted he could play the "5" and if he got moved to the wing without and shooting or ballhandling skills then he'd struggle there
