Obadiah Toppin is a Sleeper Prospect

The Dayton Flyers have themselves a bonafide sleeper on their roster, albeit a project. Obi Toppin is a redshirt freshman who was a 2* recruit (!) and completely unranked by every service. This kid is a strong 6'9" athlete with a great body, long arms, and massive athleticism. He an above the rim finisher and shows a strong. He is coming off the bench for them, but man what a physical specimen. He had 13 and 4 against #4 Virginia on 6-7 shooting and 8 and 5 vs. #25 Miss State. I am watching him play as we speak, and this kid is a skywalker. We will be seeing him rise over the next few years. You heard it here first!

Can't edit, so I'll add!

To edit, turns out he had 0 offers coming out of school in th '17 class. He spent 1 year at a prep school and wound up at Dayton. He was a backup PG his junior year, then grew 5 inches during his Senior year, and hadn't even dunked until midway through that Senior season! He seems like a really hard worker and a nice kid. I'm curious to see where he goes over the next few years.
