John Riek
18 year-old John Riek (218-C) from the Sudan stands 7-2 and could be the next Sudanese to play in the NBA.
After a journey from Bitui,Kenya to the Emirates to New York, the star of last year's Nike Hoop Jamboree at Lebron James Skills Camp started to play in the States for Our Savior New American once he arrived there.
The rising star changed schools and is now playing for The Winchendon School after getting advice by Sudanese pro Mustafa Al-Sayyad who is tutoring John.His futuer could be decided by the next NBA Draft this year , so let's wait and see how this young man is deciding or whoever is going to decide his path to a pro basketball-career.

The controversy of his transfer is documented in this article here by the Boston Globe: http://www.boston.com/sports/schools/basketball/articles/2007/12/18/a_basketball_odyssey/?page=1
and by the Daily News from New York: http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/hschool/2007/08/19/2007-08-19_the_tug_of_war_-2.html

Riek is not the only player from Sudan in high school sports right now as there are plenty of kids from the south of Sudan currently enrolled on schools around the country :

Marial Dhal, a 7-2 center and former Our Saviour-player now at Hillsborough Community College.

Thon Luony, a 6-6 forward transferred earlier to The Winchendon School from Our Savior.

Leek Leek, a 6-8 forward at Our Savior who is heavily recruited by Syracuse, Georgetown and St.John's.

Teeng Akol, a 6-11center at IMG Academy in Florida who has some interest in DePaul , St.John's , Kentucky and St.John's: http://www.brightcove.tv/title.jsp?title=1231022455&channel=1215674518

Ring Ayuel (225-C-88), a 7-5 center at Our Savior.

Steven Yien Gatkuoth, a 7-0 center formerly with Our Savior and now with Presbyterian College.

Ater Majok, a 6-10 center who made strides in Australia and should be enrolling in the U.S. on a college by the next year: http://www.foxsports.com.au/story/0,8659,21855079-23769,00.html

Deng Leek, a 6-11 center at Laurel,Maryland.

Adhar Mayen (201-F), a 6-8 forward at the University of Hawaii: http://starbulletin.com/2007/10/12/sports/story04.html

Arol Longar (206-C) , a 6-9 forward at Panola JC in Florida.

Manock Lual , a 6-6 forward at UPEI in Canada.

Nyal Mac Koshwal (208-C) at DePaul where Thijin Moses (203-F) was recently dissmissed : http://www.hooplife.ca/viewArticle.php?id=144

With so much talent to choose from , even a junior-national team would have a good chance to compete against powerhouse Nigeria and Mali on a youth-level.
Until there is no peace in Sudan, a national team consisting of players from the southern part won't happen.And with the crisis in Darfur, such a project is in a far distance...
