Mac Irvin Fire’s 2018 point guard Ayo Dosunmu was a standout this past weekend at the EYBL. He showcased his ability to score, get others involved, and get to wherever he wanted on the floor. The 6-foot-3 guard spoke about his overall game, developing, and a quick breakdown of his recruitment.
In your opinion, what do you think some of your strengths are?
I think quickness, speed, getting to the basket, scoring, defending and I’d say rebounding.
What are you working on right now to expand your game overall?
My jump shot… I just need to keep working on that and keeping getting shots up everyday in the gym.
In terms of recruiting, NC State was your latest offer. What do you like about them and what has their message been to you?
It’s a tremendous program and they’re big on their guards. I’m thankful and I just need to keep working.
Aside from them, who do you feel like is coming after you the hardest and making you a priority?
Northwestern, Creighton, Xavier, Illinois, Butler
What do you like about Northwestern and their program?
Coach (Chris) Collins is a tremendous coach and from day one he told me his timeline and what he was going to do. During the tournament they ran out of gas against a good team in Gonzaga but overall great program and the coaching staff is really good.
Coach (Greg) McDermott is also a tremendous coach and he gets players to the league and they make the tournament.
You mentioned Xavier?
Yeah, Coach (Chris) Mack and Coach (Luke) Murray are tremendous and they were just here at the game. They are recruiting me really hard and making me a priority.
They are recruiting me and their pitch to me has been the whole hometown thing.
They have great fans, coaching staff, and a great program.
For this entire process, what are some things you have learned?
I just learned that you have to work hard and keeping competing because that’s all you can do.
Do you have any visits set up or is there somewhere you would like to visit?
No, I don’t have anything right now. Right now, I’m just competing.
