NIKE EYBL Indy Top Underclassman: Kofi Cockburn

By D1 Circuit Staff, 05/02/17, 5:00PM EDT


Once again, a plethora of underclassmen came up big at an EYBL session.

Spiece Indy Heat's Keion Brooks Jr., last week's 'Underclassman' winner, kept up his torrid start to his EYBL run, while UPLAY (CAN) sophomore RJ Barrett exploded onto the scene after missing the first session.

A third underclassmen arguably shined brightest in Indianapolis, that being Renaissance (NY) sophomore big man Kofi Cockburn.

Listed at 6-foot-11, 250 pounds, Cockburn is one of the most physically-imposing big men on the circuit. While Cockburn is just getting started in his basketball career, he tapped into some of his limitless potential during session two.

The Christ the King (New York) product was extremely productive for Renaissance in Indianapolis, averaging 15.3 points and 11.3 rebounds while shooting 66% from the floor.

Before the addition of Boubacar Diakite, Cockburn was the only true big man in the RENS rotation, so his budding production is vital to their Peach Jam outlook.

While the RENS garnered only one win in Indianapolis, it's hard to think where they would have been without the contributions from their young big man. High-major colleges clearly took notice, evidenced by his new offers from Illinois and Oregon.

D1's Alec Kinsky caught up with Cockburn in Indianapolis, asking the NYC big man about his adjustment to EYBL play.
