Jean Marc Christ Koumadje,a 7-foot-4 native of Chad whose stock took off this July, has named a top three list of schools and will also remain at Montverde (FL) Academy for his senior season.
Koumadje’s top three is Florida State, UConn and UCLA, and he plans to visit all three, as well as SMU and Houston, his mentor, Suliemon Holman, told SNY.tv.
“Florida State is the only [visit] that we have committed [Sept. 5-6],” Holman said. “And UConn. UConn we’re still working out the dates. He doesn’t want to take any visits until September. He’s just doing kids stuff the rest of the summer. He’s going to take his five visits.”
