I couldn’t fit everything into my recruiting column this morning, so I thought I would add a couple of interesting things that I left out.
First of all, if you haven’t checked out the Indiana Elite’s webpage, you should (www.bloomingtonaau.com). Hamga’s team is stacked. They are 1-2 players short of the Dream Team the U.S. sent over to Barcelona.
Hamga said that the most important things he looks for in a school is the basketball program and the coach. His English is a little raw, he is fluent in French but has been in America for less than two
years, but was really polite and genuine with his answers.
Hamga’s coach, Mark Adams, said that since Hamga is from Cameroon, “he doesn’t know a whole lot about IU’s tradition, but he knows IU has won several championships and that they are a Big 10 school with a big time program.”
Adams marvelled at Hamga’s ability to block shots and rebound. For one reason or another, Adams said, shot-blocking comes naturally to the big man.
Hamga faced another big man the Hoosiers are looking at, DeAndre Jordan, while he was playing for his high school team this season. Adams said that Hamga had about 15 points, 13 rebounds and seven blocks that game while holding Jordan (the top center in the class of 2007) to 15 pointis, five rebounds and two blocks.
Towards the end of the interview, Adams said Hamga’s college decision is his own. “But it would be nice for me to be able to go to games.”

I wish I could be Beas Hamga for a day. That’s Hamga above grabbing the rim without leaving his feet. While standing flat on his feet, Hamga’s reach is 9-foot, 6 inches.
