Teeng Akol, a 6-foot-10, 225-pound power forward from Our Savior New American in Centereach, New York, is currently recovering from a hand injury, according to Pioneers assistant coach Eric Jaklitsch.
"He broke a bone in his hand playing basketball," Jaklitsch said. "He is recovering nicely. He should be back playing in about two weeks."
Akol, who also plays AAU ball for Eric Jaklitsch and Chris Phillips for the New York Elite AAU program, is likely to receive some decent division one interest in his skills as the year progresses.
Jaklitsch has mentioned that DePaul, Pittsburgh, Houston, Syracuse, and West Virginia have been the schools that have shown the most interest in the big man.
"He's open," Jaklitsch said. "Right now Teeng is getting himself ready for the season."
If he has a big season, Teeng will have plenty of offers on his table.
