Kenny Kaminski has found a landing spot, as the former top 150 forward is headed to Athens to become a member of the Ohio Bobcats.
The news was first reported by the Athens Messenger.
Kaminski was the No. 113 recruit in the country as a senior in high school, enrolling at Michigan State before sitting out the 2012-2013 season with a shoulder injury. He averaged 4.9 points and shot 49% from three this past season, but he was dismissed from the Spartan program for what head coach Tom Izzo termed “repeatedly [failing] to meet the necessary obligations” of a student-athlete.
Kaminski will reportedly apply for a waiver to receive immediate eligibility with the Bobcats. He has three seasons of eligibility remaining but only three years left to use up that eligibility.
I’m on record saying that I would consider Marquette freshman Henry Ellenson if I had the No. 2 pick in the NBA Draft, and while, at this point, I think that Brandon Ingram is probably going to end up going No. 2 — (Maybe No. 1???) — I still believe that Ellenson is going to be one of the best players from this draft class.
Well, just take a look at these highlights from the 26-point, 16-rebound performance he had in a win over Providence last night.
Then remember that Ellenson is 6-foot-11:
A solid poster dunk went down in the junior college ranks last night as Pensacola State sophomore Jamal Thomas finished a dunk through a block attempt against Northwest Florida State.
The 6-foot-3 Thomas used his power and momentum to go through the opposing shot blocker and the play made his head coach, Pete Pena, go nuts with an over-exaggerated fist pump. The video is short, but be sure to watch for Pena’s reaction near the logo at the top right of the screen.
