Gabe Olaseni

It’s not too often that a British prospect playing NCAA Division 1 gets the chance to play in front of friends and family, but that’s exactly what happened to Iowa Hawkeyes’ Abodunrin Gabe Olaseni (1991 born) last week, as Iowa came to Europe on tour.

The NCAA allows teams to tour overseas once every four years, and Head Coach Fran McCaffery and his staff chose for Iowa to come to London to allow Gabe, in his Junior year, the chance to be at home and see his friends and family.

The coaching staff have high hopes for the athletic 6’10” big man, with McCaffery saying he thinks he has a legitimate shot at the NBA. Check out the story below:
