Billy Donlon’s first recruiting class for UMKC basketball grows to four

UMKC announced two men’s basketball signings on Wednesday, bringing the recruiting class under first-year coach Billy Donlon to four.

Adefolarin “FoFo” Adetogun, a 6-1 guard from Regina, Saskatchewan, and Zion Williams, a 6-4 guard from Maybrook, New York, are the latest to join the Kangaroos.

“FoFo has a college-ready body, and he has a mentality for physicality that will help him transition to the college game.” Donlon said. “He is a point-first guard always attacking to help others get shots.”

Adefolarin will be a freshman. Williams averaged 7.6 points and 2.5 assists last season at Wallace State Community College in Alabama and will be a sophomore.

“Zion brings size to the perimeter and has played both point guard and off the ball throughout his career,” Donlon said.

They join Javan White, a 6-10 forward from Ames, Iowa, who previously played at Clemson and Oral Roberts and has one season of eligibility, and Demarius Pitts. Pitts, a 6-4 sophomore, transferred from Division II Virginia Union, where he was chosen conference rookie of the year after averaging 13.1 points.
