Morgantown, West Virginia – The West Virginia Mountaineers just added Huntington Prep’s Seny Ndiaye, a 6’11 225 pound center recruit in the 2020 class. Now, Bob Huggins and his staff will turn their attention to 2021 and towards an international player that just so happens to be playing high school basketball in West Virginia.
Sam Alajiki, a 6’7 shooting guard from Ireland, currently plays at Beckley Prep and is a former teammate of Seny Ndiaye. In fact, the two are very close and have recently worked out together. In a post from yesterday, Alajiki and Ndiaye were seen working out together.

Alajiki is a big guard with major bounce who can get to the basket and finish, create his own shot, rebound, defend and shoot the ball from the perimeter. Although a bit raw, his upside is limitless. West Virginia Head Coach Bob Huggins has yet to extend an offer, but a scholarship offer from the Mountaineers is inevitable. With his huge potential and athletic ability, Sam Alajiki could be the next big steal for West Virginia.
