Florida State has three incoming players for the class of 2010, including Okaro White (SF/PF, 6′8″, 2010), who they managed to grab while recruiting against Clemson, Georgia Tech, and Miami.

Okaro is moving from the post to the wing, where his size will be more of an asset and he can use his outstanding athleticism to a greater degree. In order for that to happen, he’ll need to develop his small forward skills, but he’s already the kind of player who understands the concept of a team game. He rebounds, works to make himself available to passers, and finishes above the rim.

Okaro will need to improve his ball-handling, and he will need to develop a consistent mid range and perimeter shot to be effective on the wing.

He’s a work in progress, but he’s got the skill set and size that could make him into an extremely solid ACC player for the Noles.
