So he wont play the role the coaches want him to play, okay.From an older STrib article:
The 6-7, 215-pound senior has been projected by some recruiting services as a power forward in college, but Ola-Joseph made very clear that his best position will be on the wing for the Gophers.
A big reason he's transferring to Prolific Prep is to be able to continue to showcase and expand his perimeter game.
"A lot of these articles are labeling me as a [power forward]," he said. "I'm not. I'm going to show a little bit more versatility and shoot the ball more. I'm an aggressive basketball player. I got a lot to prove. I'm going to this prep year with a chip on my shoulder. I'm going to show my versatility to shoot the ball very well, [handle the ball] very well, and also be aggressive."
Perhaps that speaks to his "plan" and Prolific's "plan for him" didn't quite match up.
