Akok Akok doesn’t just have a unique name. He has a unique game.
The 2019 forward is starting to rack up offers thanks to his unique skill set. According to rivals, Akok is ranking in the top-5 in the Adidas Circuit in both 3-point shooting and shot blocking.
This is exactly the type of guy Keatts is looking for. A stretch 4 with size and athleticism who can do it on both ends of the court. As you can imagine, NC State has been watching him very closely. Itt seems to be paying off as the Pack is being listed as one of his top choices.
Make sure you check out that video above. This kid is an elite shot blocker with a very good stroke. He’s a 2019 prospect so he has time to grow and build up his frame, but from the looks of it, Akok is going to be a major target.
It’s still early and interest in Akok is only going to increase. Don’t look for a commitment anytime soon, but it’s likely he starts scheduling his visits over the coming months. Will NC State get one? At this point, it’s looking good, but we’ll keep an eye on it.
