Ole Miss men’s hoops squad adds Aniefiok to signing class

Ole Miss bolstered the future of its basketball program by signing 6-foot-5, 215-pound guard Maurice Aniefiok to a national letter of intent on Thursday.

Aniefiok, a native of Nigeria, attended Huntington (W. Va.) Prep last year and averaged 13.7 points per game and 6.6 rebounds per contest while shooting 41 percent from 3-point range.
Rated a three-star prospect, he chose the Rebels over Rutgers, USC, Indiana, James Madison, Arizona State and Duquesne.

“During this time of year when there are not a lot of high level players still on the board, Ole Miss won a big time recruiting battle when they received a commitment from one of the top remaining players available,” said Mike LaPlante, a basketball recruiting analyst for ESPN. “Andy Kennedy must be excited to have secured the services of Maurice Aniefiok who, because of his physical attributes combined with his ability to shoot the ball, has drawn favorable comparisons to former NBA scorer Mitch Richmond.” (April 29, 2011, Page 6A)
