Bradley lands a player player

13 May

The all-name team welcomed a new member to the Division I ranks this week. Shayok Shayok of IMG Academy in Florida committed to new Bradley coach Geno Ford.

The 6-foot-7 forward picked Bradley over Detroit, Valparaiso and Texas Tech.

The native Canadian joins the likes of great double name players like Majok Majok, Leek Leek, Bak Bak, Deng Deng and the godfather Ruben Boumtje-Boumtje of Georgetown fame .

Shayok should see the floor right away, says Ford.

“I am thrilled Shayok has become part of the Bradley family,” Ford said.  “He is a very talented basketball player, but he also is a person of high character and a very good student.  He fills an immediate need for our program and he should compete for playing time immediately.”
