Four Star Center Ewin Chooses Ole Miss over Other High Majors

Four Star Center Ewin Chooses Ole Miss over Other High Majors

OXFORD, Miss. — The 2022 Ole Miss basketball recruiting class is starting to take shape.

A couple of weeks ago the Ole Miss Rebels landed back-to-back commitments in Robert Cowherd and TJ Caldwell. Today they landed a big commitment (literally and figuratively) in Malique Ewin out of Georgia.

Well known on the recruiting trail for a while, Ewin has collected offers from a number of major programs including in-state Georgia, Illinois, Georgia Tech, Xavier, and Alabama. Ewin has taken visits to the likes of Georgia, Alabama, Ole Miss, and others.

Currently sitting as the No. 13 center in the class of 2022, Ewin has earned a four-star rating by Rivals.

He now joins a class with Nick Krass and the aforementioned Cowherd, and Caldwell. A native of Lilburn, GA, Ewin played for Berkmar High School while playing for Quavo’s Team Huncho on the travel circuit.

With the addition of Ewin, the Ole Miss basketball team now has one open spot left for the 2022 class.

The big-name to watch is Jalen Reed. An Ole Miss legacy, Reed is the son of former Ole Miss star Justin Reed. He currently attends Southern California Academy alongside fellow Ole Miss Commit Robert Cowherd.

Fit/Analysis

Ewin fills a major need for the Ole Miss basketball program. After the year they will lose Nysier Brooks, leaving Sammy Hunter as the only center on the roster. While he fills a need, he also provides a unique skill-set that could elevate the potential of the Ole Miss program.

Ewin possesses tremendous amounts of upside thanks to plus athleticism for his position and rounded skillset. His rebounding should translate immediately. Continued advances in footwork in the post, paired along with his soft touch, could make him an interesting offensive player.

His handle and ability to put the ball on the floor in transition should fit in seamlessly for this new Ole Miss style that emphasizes pace. Defensively he can add versatility as he may be able to step out onto the perimeter for stretches.
