Nigerian Charles Bassey, a sophomore student at St. Anthony High School who migrated to the U.S circa 2015, is being regarded as one of the top recruits for the class of 2019.
Charles who didn’t touch a basketball before he was age 12, previously sold fried chicken by the roadside in Nigeria before his travel to the US.
The 6, 10′ basketball star was encouraged by a coach to give basketball a try while in Nigeria, and according to him, “Once I tried Basketball, I loved the game immediately and wanted to get better”.
He’s been regarded as San Antonio’s best kept secret, and the best high school player the Alamo City has seen since Shaquille O’neal.
Charles is making way because of his determination to be better at what he does. You can also be great at what you do if you’re determined to be.
