Olalekan Ajayi and Maurice Aniefiok both arrived on campus this summer at Collin College in Plano, Tex.
Ajayi started off at the University of Wyoming before heading to Florida International University. The Nigerian native played high school ball at Quality Education in North Carolina.
Aniefiok transferred in from Ole Miss after playing high school basketball at Huntington Prep in West Virginia.
"Ajayi is a load down in the paint and really has a good skill set for a big man his size", said JucoJunction Publisher Bret Swanson.
Ajayi and Aniefiok both played this past summer at Mullen's Top 100 Camp in St Louis, Mo.
"Maurice is a physically gifted guard with great size," said Swanson.
David Samuels returns to the roster this season at Collin College after having an outstanding freshman year, Samuels was named 1st Team All-Region and named NTJCAC Freshman of the Year for his efforts last season.
The Bronx, N.Y. native played at the Phelps School (PA) out of high school.
Samuels has received early interest and took unofficial visits to Long Island University and Lamar University.
Samuels averaged 11 points and 6.7 rebounds per game last season for the Rangers and shot 49 percent (122-245) from the floor.
