People come out to basketball events to watch the stars play. In the recruiting world, you cannot get more stars by your name than five. Fortunately for the 5th Annual Phenom’s National High School Showcase, set to take place at Greensboro Day School on November 16-17, we will have six players who are ranked among the nation’s very best in their classes.
We are going to go over each individual five-star, let you know how they play, who is recruiting them and why you need to be courtside to watch each one.
Next up is another name which is relatively new to national circles, 6’10” 2021 Sekou Sada Kalle of Aspire Academy. Sada Kalle is a native of Mali, West Africa and played up on the Adidas Gauntlet with the 16u YES II Success program. Aspire Head Coach Jeremy Kipness said of Sada Kalle, “I think it’s only going to be a matter of time, but you’re going to see him as a Top 5 player in his class.”
Sada Kalle first picked up a Rutgers offer in September of the 2017 season, and that offer was promptly followed by UCLA offering in October and then Western Kentucky (where former teammate Charles Bassey is a freshman) offering this year.
Why You Need to See Him:
Sada Kalle is a high-level athlete who runs the floor incredibly well. He has incredible athleticism and runs the floor. He is a high-level shot blocker, with natural length and timing. When he gets the ball close to the basket he tries to go up and tear the rim off.
