Homewood Flossmoor 2014 power forward Tai Odiase saw his stock rise in the spring and summer with his play for Meanstreets 17U. The athletic and angular-bodied forward is a defensive presence that blocks shots and rebounds. Offensively he runs the floor great and finishes well around the basket.
Odiase is one of the top power forwards in the state’s class of 2014. He tells us he will be making his college announcement on his birthday September 21. He has narrowed his list of schools to Valparaiso, UIC, UMKC, Ball State, IPFW, and Kent State.
