French import, Will Yeguete, a 6’7, 205 pound senior forward from Florida Air Academy, is gaining college attention after a very successful year in the states.
Yeguete averaged 12ppg, and 10rpg for Florida Air Academy while helping them advance to the regional finals and end with an impressive 24-1 record. He also helped Nike Team Florida win the Wallace Prather Tournament and reach the final four of the Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions, the Rumble in the Bronx and the Nike Peach Jam.
Tom Topping, coach of Nike Team Florida, related that “Will reminds me of a cross between Corey Brewer and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute. He is a terrific defender and rebounder and improves his perimeter skills daily. He is very aggressive and a strong finisher around the rim.”
His stellar play, divided between his high school team and travel team, has programs such as Alabama, Auburn, South Carolina, Virginia Tech, UCLA, Central Florida, North Florida, Charleston and Murray State calling.
Although Yeguete has yet to receive his first official offer, he knows what he is looking for in a college program: “I want to go to a good school with good academics. I am willing to go anywhere: distance is not a problem for me. I am looking for a place where I can get playing time early in my career.”
