Olujimi Abayomi Sorunke is a Nigerian youth doing great with his basketball skills in the US presently. Having transferred to the US in 2017 to further his education, and his basketball interests, he was enrolled at Rockville High School within the Maryland school system, and was immediately drafted into their basketball programme!

In his first year in the school team, Jimi was given the moniker “Cursebreaker” because the school had never qualified for their regional finals since 1978!!!

Points per Game: 15.0
344 Total Points, FG% = 60%
