Semi Ojeleye committed to the Blue Devils without all the fan-fare, press conferences and all that. It underscores the type of person he is. He wouldn’t be the first to tell you that he set the Kansas high school record for points in a season (952) and a career (2,763) or that he was Parade Magazine’s 2012-13 Boys’ Basketball Player of the Year, you’d have to dig to find that out. He wouldn’t be the one to boast about his outstanding vertical leap or physical gifts. He will however show you on the court. While I don’t expect huge numbers from Semi his freshman year as he adjusts to the speed and talent level, I do expect max effort and the occasional shake your head play. With his physique I expect he will play some at both forward spots and could really provide the Devils with some depth at both forward spots. It’s hard to imagine him getting pushed off the block but it isn’t hard to imagine him our muscling the average college small forward. I can see a battle between he, Josh Hairston and Alex Murphy for first man off the bench.
