Theodore (Theo) Boyomo 6' 9" C (CT)

May 12, 2009
June, 2009: Boyomo is a game changer on the defensive end who is starting to show some signs offensively. Physically, he's got everything including good size, length, strength, mobility, and athleticism. He's a big time shot blocker with good timing, especially when coming from the weak side of the floor, and is also tremendous on the glass, rebounding in traffic as well as out of his area. His offense remains behind his defense but is rapidly improving. He can score with a baby hook over his left shoulder when able to establish deep post position and has also developed a bit of a face-up game utilizing long steps, one powerful dribble, and a patented step-through move going to the rim.

May, 2008: Boyomo is a Cameroon native who arrived at the Kent School in the fall of 2007. At that time he possessed a naturally strong body despite the fact that he had never lifted weights. In the 8 months that has since passed he has developed a terrific physique with excellent muscle mass, good upper body definition, and long arms. He is also gifted athletically for a player his size possessing good agility, above average lateral quickness, and an ability to run the floor fairly well (will be even better once he learns to take longer strides). His physical prowess allows him to be a very good rebounder and finisher inside the paint. He also possesses a soft touch when facing the basket from 15 feet and in, along with a very high release point that allows him to get his shot off even when closely contested. Defensively, he is very active and able to come up with lots of deflections. He is also an emerging shot blocker. What he needs more than anything is simply time to develop as his ball skills and ability to play with his back to the basket are still raw.

New England All Defensive 1st Team

Center – Theodore Boyomo – The big man is as college ready of a defensive anchor as there is in New England. He does it all on this end of the floor with the size and strength to guard opposing low post scorers without help on the block, the mobility and timing to erase teammate’s mistakes with his help-side shot blocking, and nose for the ball to finish plays by cleaning up the glass.

I think most of you will notice the guy who got 2nd team all defense in Carson Desrosiers, and even if it is only D to be out a top prospect like him is impressive.

Theodore Boyomo – The big man has been putting a lot of miles on his legs these days but that didn’t stop him from continuing to rebound the ball in high volume, blocking his fair share of shots, and scoring with a soft touch over his left shoulder around the basket.

Theo Boyomo, 6-8, Kent School (Conn.): Boyomo was impressive in the chances he had today. He showed several nice post moves, including back-to-back jump hooks in the early going. He did not show if he could go over his right shoulder as well, but he was effective turning to the left. He also had a nice face-up jumper and a good up-and-under finish at the rim. ... uly-7.html

Of those "Middle" D-1 schools we obviously have the best program with UMass and Northeastern just behind. I know he de-committed to Canisus, but not sure who if anyone is on him right now as the list is from July.
