The Green Bay Phoenix have extended a scholarship offer to another class of 2017 prospect - 6’5” wing Naz Bohannon of Lorain, OH.
With the 2016 roster set and at least 6 scholarships to fill for 2017, it has been a busy summer for the Green Bay coaching staff. The Phoenix have extended scholarship offers to players from across the Midwest and beyond, but Bohannon represents the staff’s first offer to a prospect from Ohio.
The Phoenix will face stiff competition to land a commitment from him, however.
An explosive athlete, his football talent has earned him football scholarship offers from Iowa State, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Ohio University, and more as a defensive end or outside linebacker. He has also taken campus visits to Ohio State and Michigan State which are both showing interest.
On the basketball court, Bohannon was named the local newspaper’s Player of the Year this past season after helping his team to a conference championship and 22-4 overall record. He led his team in scoring averaging 17.7 points and 11.3 rebounds per game while shooting 53% from the floor.
He uses is athleticism well and can get to the paint and score around the basket. He has an extremely high motor and is also capable of show-stopping, highlight reel dunks.
A long, high intensity defender who is also extremely smart, he has Division I basketball scholarship offers from Brown of the Ivy League in addition to offers from Kent State and Green Bay.
The Phoenix six open scholarships will fill the voids left by this upcoming season’s senior class: Turner Botz, Kenneth Lowe, Tevin Findlay, Charles Cooper, Jamar Hurdle, and Warren Jones.
