It Only Makes Sense- God’s Gift Will Play at St. John’s

Posted: April 29, 2011 in Robert J. Romano

God’s Gift Achiuwa, a 6-foot-8 forward has signed a National Letter of Intent to play basketball at St. John’s University.  The two-time junior-college All-American averaged 22.3 points, 11.7 rebounds and 2.2 blocks as a sophomore.

“I am excited to come to St. John’s and New York City. I really like the coaching staff and the way St. John’s plays. They are a running team and that’s what I like, fast paced basketball,” Achiuwa said. “I also like the winning tradition of the new coaching staff. They came into the St. John’s program and turned things around in less than a year. I think that’s a good indication that the program is on its way back.”

God’s Gift opted for the Red Storm because of Head Coach Stan Lavin and the fact that he has made St. John’s a powerful program again, while also being impressed with assistants Mike Dunlap and Rico Hines since they have previous coaching experience the NBA.

God’s Gift will have two years of eligibility with the Red Storm.  Go Johnnies!!
