David Kadiri’s talent was never a question, but as the 2013 forward went through a nomadic high school career that saw four stops, some wondered whether he’d get to show his potential at a Division I level.
A monster summer and senior season at Coolidge put that concern to rest, though, and Kadiri got his D-I spot on Wednesday, verbally committing Maryland Baltimore-County (UMBC) after an official visit.
“They’d been in the picture for maybe like a month or two,” Kadiri said. “They’d been to our games since we went to Hawaii (in December), so they’ve been following me since I’ve been at Coolidge, for real. But about a month ago is when they really started to contact me and I started to give them a lot more attention.”
