UPDATE 2/4/15: Asked on ESPNU on Signing Day if he had hats for the University of Phoenix and ITT Tech, Jamobo said, “They’re out of the running now.”
Jamobo then put two UCLA baseball caps on the table before putting on the blue one.
“My first school is the University of California Los Angeles and my second school is the University of California Los Angeles,” he said. “That’s where I’ll be attending school for the next four years.”
Yes, this is a basketball blog and yes, we’re a little late on this one, but it’s too good to pass up.
Soso Jamabo, a 6-foot-2 running back from Plano (TX) West, had a little fun with his recruitment this week. Jamabo, who is reportedly considering Texas and UCLA, said in this TV interview he is considering two online programs: ITT Tech and the University of Phoenix.
Jamabo might have Cliff Alexander beat in terms of fake recruiting announcements. Alexander, as you may recall, first reached for an Illinois baseball cap before putting on a Kansas one, much to the disgust of Illini fans.
