Grayson High 6-foot-9 forward signs with Kennesaw State

Grayson’s Andrew Osemhen has signed a basketball scholarship with Kennesaw State, according to the college.

The 6-foot-9 forward was a four-year starter for Grayson, averaging 12 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 2.6 blocked shots as a senior this past season.

“He is a little raw at this point, but we feel that his best days are in front of him and, provided he brings the work ethic, we anticipate he will see some minutes as a freshman,” Kennesaw State coach Tony Ingle said in a statement.

Osemhen is the second local player signed by Kennesaw State this year, joining Tucker High’s Brandon Dawson.

Ingle is horrible. With all the talent in the metro area he still can’t get guys in there to compete. His only real good gets have been Cummings and Dixon. He missed out on Brandon Reed in his own backyard. Time for KSU to get someone in there who can recruit the area. He did nothing to keep the momentum after the D2 national title run. That program has gone downhill because he has still been recruiting D2 talent with a D1 schedule.

This kid won’t last two years. Ingle has so much turnover on his rosters its unbelievable, especially with big men. I’ve never seen a coach in D1 run so many guys off of scholarship before the 4 years is up. Tony needs to hit the road.
