Bowling Green, KY - Ray Harper received another verbal commitment Wednesday. Sophomore forward Aaron Adeoye committed to WKU, according to John A. Logan College assistant coach Zach Carpenter.

Adeoye is a six-foot-seven forward and chose the Hilltoppers over Murray State and Indiana State.

In his sophomore season at John A. Logan, Adeoye averaged 14.3 points and eight rebounds per game. He also shot 49 percent from the field.

WKU will be Adeoye's third different school in three years. He played at Ball State as a freshman. Adeoye will have two years of eligibility remaining and can play immediately.

On Monday, Iowa Western forward Daouda Soumaoro signed a letter of intent with WKU. He comes to the Hill on the heels of two separate ACL injuries. Last week, Kingdom Prep Academy guard Fredrick Edmond committed to WKU, but may not qualify academically.

Should Adeoye and Edmond sign with the Hilltoppers, WKU would be over the scholarship limit. Head coach Ray Harper confirmed last week redshirt sophomore Stephon Drane plans to transfer, but that still leaves the Toppers with more bodies than scholarships.
