Following the closing of St. Anthony’s historic program, Akuwovo is the latest prospect to transfer from the Jersey City school. Class of 2018 guard Ithiel Horton announced he will play at Roselle Catholic next fall. As to Akuwovo’s decision to transfer to the rising power that is the Ranney School, the big man noted the school’s prowess for being academically challenging, along with their high exposure basketball schedule that could result in serious contention for the coveted Tournament of Champions title. Along with the basketball benefits, Akuwovo said Ranney has in place a “great group of kids like myself” in reference to his selfless nature. Meantime, 2019 guard Alex Rice is still visiting schools and weighing his options. The son of Monmouth head coach King Rice, he averaged 10 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists at St. Anthony’s.
