Head coach Howard Moore, Donnie Kirksey and UIC have scored on the 2014 recruiting trail and have now picked up a verbal from class of 2014 Homewood-Flossmoor star Tai Odiase.
Odiase, a 6'9 post, is a prospect who saw his recruiting stock soar over the course of the past year. He is a long and mobile post with a defensive mentality who still brings a great deal of upside potential to his game.
Odiase noted to Chicago Hoops that his overall comfort level with the coaching staff at UIC, and their ability to develop him as a player as being a major reason for his decision to become a Flame.
Odiase is a strong student in the classroom and intends to major in Biology.
Odiase competed on the travel team circuit with Meanstreets.
Odiase’s verbal comes on the heels of the program landing 2015 guard Drew Hackett (Munster, IN).
