2020 Knoxville Catholic PF Akeem Odusipe Commits to Vanderbilt

This is going to be super hilarious if he becomes a good player at Vanderbilt after Tennessee overlooked him.

Jerry Stackhouse added his third recruit of the 2020 class on Wednesday, and let’s just say that this will be fun if he turns into a star player in the black and gold.

Akeem Odusipe is listed at 6’9” and 220 pounds, and per Rivals is ranked as the #23 center prospect in the Class of 2020. The 247 Sports composite ranks him #344 nationally and the #51 center prospect. Originally from Nigeria, Odusipe had been playing high school basketball in Knoxville, Tennessee. Did Tennessee have any interest in him? No.

As such, this has the potential to become extremely hilarious for us. “Recruit who played high school basketball in Knoxville and did not draw any interest from the University of Tennessee becomes star player at Vanderbilt” would just be so great that I can’t even fathom the greatness of it.

Here’s a highlight tape:
