Boban Jacdonmi inks with Golden Eagle men's basketball program
HATTIESBURG, Miss. -- The Southern Miss men's basketball program has announced Boban Jacdonmi (London, England) as its second signee for the 2017-18 season.
"We are very excited that Boban made the decision to come to Southern Miss," head coach Doc Sadler said. "We felt like he fills a need and that his best basketball is ahead of him. When evaluating players, one of the most important things to me is character and wanting to be here. Boban passed all the tests, and we are excited to have him."
Jacdonmi, who has a 6-foot-9, 250-pound build, relocated from London to North Staffordshire, where he then played for the Newcastle Knights. Jacdonmi ultimately chose Chattanooga State Community College in Tennessee, where he started both years he was there. He averaged 8.5 points and 5.3 rebounds per game as a freshman and shot 53.4 percent from the field as a sophomore.
He has succeeded off the court as well, and will soon be honored with a Hats Off to Excellence award from Chattanooga State that commemorates those who maintained above a 3.0 GPA for two years.
Jacdonmi is the first international native signee of the Sadler era.
