Olukemi, a (SO) 6-foot-7 (215) wing player from La Habra, CA, recently played at Jerry Mullens 120 Camp in Tulsa, OK.

Providence, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, DePaul University, South Florida and Washington State are already pursuing Olukemi this summer according to coach Davis.
"J.P. is very explosive and has a great body and he could be our next pro out of Vincennes," says Davis.
Olukemi averaged 14.8 ppg, 4.1 rebounds and 1.7 assists last season while shooting 51.6% (128-248) from the floor last season. The Trailblazers finished 22-9 last season under then first year head coach David Ragland.
