Lanus Buenos Aires (LigaA) signed 37-year old American (has also Liberian passport) power forward Samuel Hoskin (206-102kg-79, college: De Paul, agency: Higher Vision Sports). He started the season at Malvin in Uruguayan LUB league. In 28 games he was fifth best scorer with 13.0ppg and averaged 7.0rpg this season. The last summer Hoskin played at Shahrdari Gorgan (Superleague) in Iran. In 16 games he had 14.6ppg and 7.4rpg. He helped them to make it to the semifinals. A very impressive season as he was named to All-Iranian Superleague Honorable Mention. The last (2015) season Hoskin played at Zamalek (Superleague) in Egypt.
He was voted All-Liga Americas Forward of the Year in 2016.
The previous (2014) summer he played at Marinos (LPB) in Venezuelan league. In 14 games he recorded 9.8ppg and 5.5rpg in 2014 season. He contributed to his team winning the league title. The last (2014) season Hoskin played at Nift Al-Janoub (D2) in Iraqi league. He contributed to his team making it to the final after they ended regular season as second best team. Quite impressive season as he was named to All-Iraqi League 3rd Team.
In 12-13 season Hoskin played at Jilin Tigers (CBA) in Chinese league. In 27 games he recorded very remarkable stats: 20.9ppg, 10.3rpg, 1.5apg and 1.0spg in 2012-13 season.
In 2003 he was drafted by Westchester Wildfire (USBL) as #2 pick overall.
The former De Paul University staris in his 13th (hopefully lucky) season in pro basketball. Hoskin represented Liberia at the WABA Club Championships four years ago.
He is quite experienced player. Hoskin has played also professionally in Croatia (Cibona), Greece (Olympiacos), Israel (Bnei Hasharon), Italy (Virtus Obiettivo Lavoro Bologna), Lebanon (Champville), Russia and China (Zhejiang Chouzhou Bank and Xinjiang Flying Tige).
It's very possible he may end his playing career at Lanus.
Hoskin could be described: A a rare 6'9" player that has ability to play extremely strong at the basket and also take his man off the dribble and shoot from the perimeter. Very coachable personality, he perforemed so well in last times that he's now widely considered one of the best power forwards in Europe.
