Very exciting news today for Lions fans. Patson Siame (from Zambia) a 6'10" who is a center playing at Impact Basketball Academy in Las Vegas has committed to the Lions per several recruiting sites. There is not much information on Siame as he seems to have just gotten to the US but Frank Burlison a respected basketball writer saw Siame play at Nevada Basketball development league game and described him as:
Patson Siame impressed more than any other forward in the event. The athletic Zambia native who trains at Impact Basketball Academy blocked numerous shots, ran the floor well, and dunked again and again. He passes pretty well for a big man with a relatively raw game and he has a natural feel for where to be on offense. He is a high-major prospect who has an obvious enthusiasm for the game.
In doing research on him what really impressed me was that he has been invited to play at the prestigious Nike Hoops summit where the "World Team" will go up against some of the top rated US players>
I'm sure there will be more information coming out as we find out more about Patson. Sounds like an excellent addition to our 2012 class.

An tremendous recruiting job by the staff.
Go Lions and welcome Patson!
