2024 point guard Adam Njie is a prospect who’s being recruited by programs all across the country. Njie, a 6-foot-2 guard, played for Hillcrest Prep (AZ) this past season, and is bound to have a busy summer now that college coaches can call him directly.
On the court, Njie is a relentless slasher, never shying away from contact at the rim. Additionally, he also brings moxie, confidence, and can generate offense in bunches. Njie has the craft to create something for his team off the bounce, and has morphed into a multi-level scorer throughout his short but productive high school career. As a lead guard, Njie is decisive and assertive with the ball in his hands, rarely getting sped up, or knocked out of his rhythm.
Last week, Njie spent time with Pro Insight’s Jake Lieberman to chat about the latest with his recruitment.
