Troy High’s Javion Ogunyemi Commits To Siena

Over the last several months, there has been great drama surrounding the Troy High School basketball team, and it had nothing to do with anything happening on the court. Senior forward Javion Ogunyemi was being recruited by several Division 1 mid-major teams, and recently cut the field down to a pair of finalists: Siena College and James Madison University. Well earlier today, Javion ended the drama by giving his oral commitment to Mitch Buonaguro and the Saints.

The 6-foot-8 forward made a visit to the Loudonville campus during the recruiting process and ultimately opted to stay home, where his skills have developed through the Albany City Rocks AAU program and under Rich Hurley’s leadership at Troy High. The head coach of the Flying Horses told media outlets this morning that Ogunyemi’s decision was “due to his relationship with the coaches, the opportunity for early playing time and the team’s potential.”

Javion’s decision can be made official as soon as this coming Wednesday (November 14) by signing a National Letter of Intent with Siena, which would fill the Saints’ final scholarship spot for the 2013-14 season. This comes as terrific news for local basketball fans, as they prepare for Siena’s home opener later tonight against Vermont.
