LARAMIE, Wyo. -
University of Wyoming head basketball coach Heath Schroyer has announced the signing of Afam Muojeke, to a national letter of intent to play for the Cowboys beginning in the 2007-08 season.
Muojeke is a 6' 6", 190-pound guard/forward from Genesis One Preparatory School in Mendenhall, Miss. Muojeke averaged 23.7 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game this past season at Genesis One. He helped lead his prep school team to a 21-14 record in 2006-07. Genesis One was ranked as high as No. 8 in the nation among prep schools by HoopsUSA.com. They concluded their season as the consolation champions at the National Association of Christian Athletes (NACA) National Tournament in Dayton, Tenn. His first season at Genesis One, Muojeke averaged 21 points, six rebounds and six assists. His prep school coach was Vic Evans.
Prior to attending Genesis One Prep, Muojeke played his high school basketball at Monsignor McClancy High School in East Elmhurst, N.Y., and John Bowne High School in Flushing, N.Y. In the summers, he played AAU basketball for the New York Sky Riders, participating for the Sky Riders in the Adidas 64 Tournament in Las Vegas, Nev., in the summer of 2006.
"Afam (Muojeke) is a very talented, young player," said Schroyer. "He is the type of player who fits the way we want to play. He is long, athletic and really shoots the ball well. He is accustomed to playing in a system that focuses on tough man-to-man defense, and has the ability to not only shoot the basketball well from the perimeter, but score around the hoop. He can play either the two-guard or small-forward positions. Afam is a quality person who I've watched develop as a player through the years. He has played at a very high level in high school and prep school. We are very excited to get a young man with his abilities and experience in our first recruiting class at Wyoming."
