Between his switch to the Nike EYBL circuit, his ongoing recruitment and his goals with USA Basketball, Armando Bacot has a lot going on this spring and summer.
The 6-foot-10, 238-pound power forward from Trinity Episcopal School (VA) switched to Team Takeover on the Nike circuit from Team Loaded on the Adidas one. Though he’s still adjusting to his new teammates, Takeover went 4-0 this past weekend in Indianapolis.
“I just wanted to get an opportunity to play on the EYBL and just wanted to finish off with who I started with,” Bacot said Tuesday by phone. “My mom thought it would be a good move for me.”
Takeover has a loaded roster and Bacot is settling in nicely.
