UNC Offers Aminu

Inside Carolina
Posted Apr 11, 2007


The Tar Heel coaching staff has taken the next step in its recruitment of Al-Farouq Aminu, offering the 6-8, 200-pound junior forward a scholarship on Tuesday.

Norcross (Ga.) High School sources confirmed the news to Inside Carolina on Wednesday morning.

Dave Telep, lead recruiting analyst for ScoutHoops.com, says Aminu's skills away from the basket are what make him such a special prospect.

"Al-Farouq's kind of a unique guy because I think he's a four man who has a different skill set than most at his position," Telep said. "He can face the basket and go off the dribble. He's less of a post four and more of a perimeter four."

Telep ranks Aminu as the No. 4 power forward in the class and a Top 10 prospect overall.

"He's a big time prospect," Telep continued. "For him to continue ascending up the charts, it's about every single time out exerting his dominance on the game. He's talented enough to begin taking over games. That's the next step for him."
