JL0_7190It was a homecoming of sorts when NorCal freshman point guard Surako Follings, 6’0″, 170, arrived at Antelope Valley College.  The Fremont High School freshman met with NoCal players Osinachi “Osi”Nwackukwau, 6’4″, 205 from San Leandro HS and  Miles Wise, 6’3″, 185, from Liberty HS, currently sophomores at AVC.   Also, he has been following AVC graduate and now D-1 Bowling Green State University graduate, Ismail Ali, point guard who is currently is working to sign a professional contract.  Ish was also is a graduate of San Leandro HS.

Surako was a athletic star at Fremont High School playing both quarterback for football(early high school years) and point guard for the basketball team.  Follings brings the toughness and leadership from the football side of athletics and looks to have great floor vision and shooting ability on the basketball court.

I spoke with Surako and he says he has decided to dedicate his athletics to the basketball court now that he has reached the college level.  He had several D-2 basketball scholarship offers, is an academic qualifier and averaged 18 points per game and five+ assists in his senior year in High School.  He believes that he has a good shot of being offered a D-1 scholarship down the road now that he has joined the Antelope Valley College’s program and is dedicating himself to that goal.

The following highlight video gives you a view of Surako Follings’ skill set.  Welcome to AVC basketball.
