Aggie Basketball Recruit Oyedeji Dies from Auto Accident

COLLEGE STATION, Texas - Tobi Oyedeji (O-yee-day-jee), a 6-9 power forward from Houston Bellaire and a Texas A&M basketball signee, has died from injuries suffered from a car accident, Aggie head basketball coach Mark Turgeon said on Sunday.
               
"The world has lost a great kid today," Turgeon said. "Tobi epitomized the term student-athlete. He was a very good student. He worked hard in the classrooms and on the basketball court and he was a terrific basketball player. This is difficult to understand and today is a very sad day. My heart aches for his mom and dad. Tobi was an only child and I would like everyone to pray for Tobi's parents."

Oyedeji had most recently played in the High School Academic All-American Game and was named the American's squad Player of the Game. After his senior season, Oyedeji was named to the All-Greater Houston team as well as a member of the TABC All-State Class 5A basketball team.
