G/F Gbinije a Top 2011 Class Prospect

Michael Gbinije ‘s recruiting card

6-6, 185-pound guard/forward Michael Gbinije enters his first year at Benedictine (Richmond, VA) seeking to improve a game that has already garnered high praise from national recruiting services. The standout junior, ranked a 5-star prospect by Scout.com and a 4-star recruit by Rivals.com, will be the Cadets most highly acclaimed prospect since forward Ed Davis, who signed with North Carolina in the 2008 recruiting class.

“Coach Mac is the type of coach that can get me ready for the next level, I believe,” said Gbinije, who attended Christchurch School last year. “He has mental toughness. He has coached some players who are in college now, like Ed Davis.”

The “Coach Mac” Gbinije refers to is Cadets boys varsity basketball head coach Sean McAloon, who first had an opportunity to coach his standout junior during this summer’s NBAPA Top 100 Camp.
