Fork Union Military Academy has produced some intriguing talent over the years and they are doing it once again. 2021 Jules Bikoy is one that has seen an uptick with his recruitment, securing a Division I offer just last week while others are evaluating more of his game and what he has to offer.
Playing at FUMA this year has been a good adventure for Bikoy, as he has really enjoyed playing with his teammates, learning from his teammates, and developing his game to prepare for the next level. “I think I’ve become more skilled overall and I became a better leader this year,” he told Phenom Hoops. “The game really began to slow down for me.”
The two-way, shifty combo guard has played well this season and what he has to offer is something college coaches seem to like, as he secured his first offer from Towson. Starting his way from St. Mary’s Ryken and then going to Friendly HS, then to Fork Union, it has been a long road but one that is paying off in the end with a chance to play at the next level.
“I’m humbled and blessed to have received this offer,” he said. “I like how they emphasize toughness, which is the basis of their culture. They liked my game and thought I fit their style of play. My main contact from Towson has been with the assistant coach, Coach Branden.
Towson is the first program to send an offer his way but Bikoy also mentioned schools like UCF, VCU, Longwood, and Maryland Eastern Shore have all talked to him, saying that they like his game and they are evaluating him.
With no timetable of when he may want to commit and looking to take his time, discuss with his family and coaches on what is best for him, Bikoy could see more schools enter into the mix.
What was said by Phenom Hoops:
“Bikoy is a shifty, strong guard. He works his tail off on both ends, bringing a tremendous two-way ability to the floor. Absolutely loved his on-ball defense, really creating havoc for his opponents but also scoring from multiple levels on the floor offensively.” – Patrick O’Brien in 2020
