6’5 | 195 | Combo Guard | Hometown: Fayetteville, NC | Home Country: Ivory Coast | High School: Peddie Class of 2022 | Twitter: @Sheick_Samoura | AAU: Team Loaded
Samoura is looking for any size school. He is open to playing just about anywhere at any level. He is a high-academic player who earned a 4.2 GPA in high school. He is looking to fit in with his new program and play any role that his new program needs him to play.
What are Samoura’s strengths?
“Attacking the basket and playing with athleticism. Foul trouble. Any role needed; versatile. A defensive pest. I am a long guard with a good shooting stroke and next level athleticism who does all the little things to help the team win. Weak side blocks are an underrated skill; averaged the most in the state of NC and NJ aside from 7 footers.”
What did he learn at his past school?
“That I can work and gain skills that I need for the next level.”
Three Non-Basketball Related Interests
