Stretch is on campus (Updated)

Recommended Posts





I hope Pat Forde thoroughly investigates whether or not Bruce threw a barbecue for the customs agents that handled Stretch's papers...

This is a fan account. No clue if this guy has any real sources. We still need to wait on confirmation from AU reporters or a real insider like Hooks.

Well it’s confirmed, yes.

Actually the next update will probably say “Stretch is on campus”.

Excellent news if he can get enrolled. We'll be losing a lot of size after this next season with both Mac and Wiley moving onwards

Akingbola reports to Auburn

Qw3gw8a82capc7swgqoo
 

AUBURN | Babatunde “Stretch” Akingbola’s long-awaited arrival in Auburn is over.

Akingbola, a four-star center in Bruce Pearl’s 2019 recruiting class, has officially reported to campus, according to a source within the athletics department.

Akingbola is the seventh and final signee in the 2019 class to report to Auburn. All seven either have begun classes at Auburn or will begin classes on Monday.

Akingbola, who played high school ball at McEachern in Powder Springs, Ga., had been in his home country of Nigeria for the better part of a year as he worked to resolve matters with his visa.

Akingbola is part of the Tigers’ 13th-ranked class that included his teammate at McEachern, five-star wing Isaac Okoro, four-star guard Tyrell Jones, four-star forward Jaylin Williams, three-star guard Allen Flanigan, three-star forward Devan Cambridge and junior college forward Javon Franklin.

Horace 2.0

Horace was awesome for team chemistry & a great role player. I think Stretch can be better in terms of individual skills & I think he has the frame to be quite a bit thicker than HS.

A4E will definitely approve a 6'8" player. 

A year to resolve a problem with his visa? I'd be switching to MasterCard if I was him. :-\

Now that he is on Campus and enrolled I am assuming he is practicing with the team without the coaches. Has anybody seen him play in the pickup games, is he in shape. For that matter for a while we would get some people who would watch some of the team practice on their own and comment on it. I haven't heard anything in a while. Does anybody have any information on how the individual players are looking?

He looks like a beast out there, much bigger than what I was expecting from a strength, weight perspective.

Apparently is a terror on the defensive end also.

Will he see time at the 4?  Or just 5?

The 5 barring foul trouble with the 4s. He doesn’t have an offensive game right now which is not conducive to playing the 4.
