Updated: Aug 5, 2020

Don't know about you, but we can't keep up with all the talent Chris Jans has brought in particularly in the last few months. This predicament inspired us to start a blog series on newcomers for the 2020 season. This is not limited to the 2020 recruiting class but will cover all Aggies we have yet to see suit up. Please enjoy the first installment of this 9-part series!

Did we miss something? Let us know in the comments!

Wilfried Likayi

High school and JuCo Rankings
  • 3-star recruit out of high school with offers from the likes of: Oklahoma, Hawaii, Texas Tech before playing two years at Casper CC and leading them with 16.8 points and 7.8 rebounds per game.



Eligibility and Fit
  • Two years of eligibility but already burned redshirt year in 2019 with an injury.

  • Pure speculation but expect Likayi to split time with Agee and Kiir in the front court.

Aggie Comparison
  • Pascal Siakam - Only in terms of skill set and style. Lanky, offensive-minded 4 who plays facing the basket.

  • Mohamed Thiam
