VCU filled in another piece to the puzzle today with the announcement of the commitment of 2017 big man, Lewis Djonkam.
The Hargrave product was originally a Duquesne commit but re-opened his recruitment with firing of Dukes head coach Jim Ferry this offseason.
A 6’9 240-pound post player, Djonkom averaged a 14.7-point, 10.4-rebound double double as a senior at West Springfield High before taking a post-grad year at Hargrave.
Djonkam joins a 2017 class that now consists of 6’7 265-pound rebound machine Marcus Santos-Silvia and versatile 6’9 point forward Sean Mobley. The Rams will hope to add a guard to that class soon and host 4-Star ?? Pittsburgh decommit Aaron Thompson this weekend.
The Rams have also added two stud transfers as well, getting combo guard Marcus Evans from Rice (19 ppg) and stretch 4 Khris Lane from Longwood (17 ppg). Evans will be forced to sit out the next season due to NCAA transfer rules while Lane will be immediately eligible as a graduate transfer.
