Spending his high school years at Miller School of Albemarle, Balogun played a key role in the side winning consecutive Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association Division II state titles.
The Hoopsfix All-Star Classic alumnus averaged 4 points, 2 rebounds and 1.3 blocks on 57.9% shooting last season.
🇬🇧 Tariq Balogun got the job done brilliantly in his first start of 2022: was a nightmare off the PnR for Lipscomb, didn't miss a single shot and provided his usual rim protection for a 86-72 win by Eastern Kentucky. @Riqdagreat
