Ole Miss Men’s Basketball Announces Pair of Signees in Class of 2024
OXFORD, Miss. – (Release) The 2023 early National Letter of Intent signing day period has arrived, and the Ole Miss men’s basketball team secured a pair of student-athletes for the 2024 recruiting class in forward John Bol and guard Eduardo Klafke on Wednesday.
Ranked as the second-highest recruit in program history according to 247Sports, Bol is a consensus four-star recruit, ranking as high as No. 38 in the nation by 247Sports and No. 40 by ESPN. He is an elite shot blocker and rebounder who stands at 7’1” and is able to affect the game on both ends of the floor. Ranked as the top player in the state of Georgia by ESPN, Bol has developed a reputation as one of the hardest playing big men in the country.
A combo guard from the prestigious NBA Academy Latin America, Klafke will come to Oxford from Franca-Sao Paulo, Brazil. One of the top international players in his age group, he has consistently played above his age while representing Brazil on the national stage, playing in U19 games as a 17-year-old. Klafke will help bring a spark to the offense as an elite shooter and is excellent in playing both on and off the ball.
The early NLI signing period runs from November 8 to November 15 for men’s basketball.
