Hillcrest Prep (Phoenix) adds 7-3 Chris Sodom to play alongside DeAndre Ayton

Hillcrest Prep (Phoenix) already had one of the nation’s best big men in 7-footer DeAndre Ayton, ranked as the No. 1 player in the Class of 2017.

Now, the program has added 7-3 Chris Sodom from Beaumont Central in Texas, according to a tweet late Friday night. Sodom is originally from Nigeria and played for the Houston defenders on the Under Armour Association circuit.

He is a shot blocker, given his size, and will need to refine and develop his offensive game. He averaged 3.7 points and 3.8 rebounds during the 12 games of the UA schedule.

His addition follows that of Duro Shegc, a 6-9 eighth grader whom Hillcrest says has a 7-foot-5 wingspan.
