Scotland Campus forward Maidoh to visit St. John’s
By ZACH SMART
Scotland Campus Class of 2019 forward Chris Maidoh will visit St. John’s tomorrow, as Mike Anderson ushers in the new era with the first campus visit. A late-blossoming prospect who brings defensive versatility and a consistent outside shot and rim protection, Maidoh was a role player for the 36-2 Knights this season.
“It’s going to be a great experience to get a feel of how it is at that level,” said Maidoh.
“Playing in the Big East. Playing in New York and Madison Square Garden, it’s a big opportunity. They made the tournament this past year. I know that was the previous staff and everything, but it’s always good to see a winning program and for my first visit I’m looking forward to it.”
