Putnam Science Academy prep basketball has been known for their guard play for several years now. PSA has loaded up on big men again this year with returning forward Kareem Reid along with new comers Abou Ousmane and Mohammed Sylla. The Mustangs weren’t done there as they recently added 7-foot, 255- pound center Russel Tchewa, above, from Italy. Tchewa had to wait until his visa cleared before he could join the Mustangs but it was a wait that Tchewa knew would be for the best. Soon after arriving at PSA this past week, Russel officially committed to Texas Tech to join the Red Raiders next year. Head Coach Tom Espinosa was thrilled to add another big man like Tchewa who can step out and knock down the outside shot along with effect shots in the paint as a true rim protector. Espinosa said, “We have been waiting for Russell for several weeks to arrive here to campus. We are more than excited to start working with Russell and getting him involved in the Putnam community.” Tchewa when asked about Putnam Science Academy said, “I heard about PSA after last year’s National Prep Championship. I wanted to join the culture there and try to raise my game the best I can.” When asked about his goals for this upcoming season, Russel kept it short and sweet. “I’m trying to help us repeat as champs.” Courtesy photo.
