More Nigerians on the Way???
The whispers about Carroll adding a pair of 7-foot Nigerians might be true. "It's a possibility," Carroll Coach Clinton Perrow said this morning. "A strong possibility."
Perrow confirmed that two Nigerians - alleged to be very tall -- have applied for admission to the school but have yet to arrive in the United States. They could arrive soon and immediately be eligible for play this season. Along with the strong play of Kris Joseph and the return of point guard Travis King from an ankle injury, the late-season acquisitions could make the Lions a strong contender in the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference.
"It's kind of shaky," Perrow said. "I don't know. It might not happen until next year. I'm hoping to know something by the beginning of next week and have some firm confirmation when exactly they might be here."
Three tall Nigerians already enrolled in WCAC schools this season: O'Connell's Frank Ben-Eze, Bishop McNamara's Talib Zanna and Good Counsel's Julius Omoniurhie.
If two more enroll at Carroll -- especially at this stage of the season -- expect other coaches to be outraged. The WCAC has rules in place that force local transfers to sit out a year of competition, but nothing to govern international players.
