Meanstreets PF picks Valpo

Power forward Jabril Adekoya (Tinley Park, Ill./Andrew) gave Valparaiso a verbal commitment on Wednesday, according to The Post-Tribune.

The 6-foot-6 Adekoya chose the Crusaders over other mid-major programs based on his relationships with the coaching staff.

"Both Coach [Bryce] Drew and Coach [Roger] Powell are young, energetic coaches who I really got along with and who I could see myself playing for," he told the paper. "I can see myself there, playing for them, over my four years of college."

Adekoya becomes the fourth recruit for Drew from the 2013 class, joining SG Clay Yeo (Bourbon, Ind./Triton), SG Nick Davidson (Merrillville, Ind./Andrean) and PG Lexus Williams (Chicago/Marist).
