SAINT JOSEPH'S now has practically a whole team of commitments for its Class of 2014. First, it was a point guard from New York, followed by a power forward and wing from North Carolina and now, a center from West Virginia by way of Nigeria.
The latest to commit is 6-10 Obi Romeo, from Greenbriar East High in Lewisburg, W.Va. According to Rick Romeo, who has adopted Obi, his son was first spotted at an American-style basketball camp in Nigeria. He came to America 2 years ago to go to a school that was forming. The school never actually formed. Obi and a few others were having trouble getting placed in another school.
