Fresno State has received letter of intent from Emmanuel Owootoah

Fresno State has received a signed national letter of intent from Emmanuel Owootoah, the 5-foot-10 point guard from Cordia High in Hazard, Ky.

Owootoah is the fourth player in another strong recruiting class signed by Coach Rodney Terry and his staff, joining forward Paul Watson from Paradise Valley High in Phoenix, forward Alex Davis from Hutchinson Community College in Hutchinson, Kan., and forward Soma Edo from Berkner High in Richardson, Tex.

He will give the Bulldogs two true point guards along with Oklahoma State transfer Cezar Guerrero, which they did not have a year ago.

The ‘Dogs 2013 recruiting class also gives them Mountain West Conference-level players with length at the three in the 6-7 Watson and perhaps the 6-9 Davis, who said when he made an oral commitment to Fresno State that he was working to develop his skills on the perimeter. He also can play the four.

Fresno State has received an oral commitment from 2013 point guard Emmanuel Owootoah from Cordia High in Hazard, Ky.

”He’s a natural point guard, a pass-first point guard with the ability to score the basketball,” said Cordia coach Roderick Rhodes, who played three seasons at Kentucky, one at USC and was the Houston Rockets first-round selection in the 1997 NBA Draft.

”I’m looking forward to seeing him play around better players and I think his game will show that much more when he’s around more talented, stronger and better players because as a passer he’s unbelievable. His vision on the court is unbelievable and I’m really looking forward to seeing him play with guys who are able to read plays and get up and down the court.”
