Class of 2019
Ador hails from Twic, South Sudan where he lived with his sixteen brothers and sisters before moving to the United States in 2015 with the dream of playing professional basketball. Although his primary goal in coming to the US was to receive a college scholarship so he can build a career that will help his family back in his civil-war-torn homeland, Ador’s natural talent on the basketball court shines so bright that his coaches consider him to be one of the highest recruited players in the US for the 2019 graduation year. Currently, he is being recruited by several top-tier universities, and will likely have his pick of colleges when the official offers are presented next year.
