A Bulldog goes big
Allan Hancock College basketball player Khufu Najee signed a letter of intent to attend Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis—a Division I school.
A 6-foot-4, 185-pounder from Berkeley, who spent just one year at Hancock, Najee has already been informed he’ll be competing for a starting position right away, according to Hancock athletics.
Hancock reported that Najee averaged 16.2 points and 5.2 rebounds a game in his time at Hancock where he also earned All-Western State Conference player. Najee was also a stellar student, maintaining a 3.7 GPA while at Hancock.
“We are proud of Khufu and the role he has played on our men’s basketball team,” Athletic Director Kim Ensing said in a recent press release.
