RICHMOND, Va. â€“ Just weeks after Head Coach Shaka Smart guided VCU basketball into NCAA history, he and his staff have brightened the future of the program with the signing of Teddy Okereafor, a 6-4, 185-pound point guard out of Christchurch (Va.) School.
â€œThe addition of Teddy is huge news to our program and vital to our future,â€ Smart said. â€œHis biggest asset is making his teammates better, which is a trait that all winning players share.â€
Originally from London, England, Okereafor came to the Commonwealth last fall to finish his high school career at Christchurch School under the guidance of Head Coach Ben Thompson. Since his arrival, he has become one of the top players in the state and helped his squad to one of its best seasons ever, reaching the state semifinals in March.
