"We are happy to be adding Emmanuel to Santa Clara basketball family.  Obviously he possess a great deal of size, but it's his willingness to learn and improve each and every day is really what is exciting.  He has only played basketball for a short amount of time and his best basketball is ahead of him. We are excited he will be here at Santa Clara."
