Welcome Mouphtaou Yarou

I have no idea how to pronounce his name, but Mouphtaou Yarou has committed to Villanova. He is a highly touted recruit from the class of 2009, ranked #14 overall and #5 among power forwards. Yarou is 6'9, 210 lbs., and very athletic. He is originally from Benin in West Africa and now plays for Montrose Christian in Rockville, Maryland. He will be a teammate of fellow 2009 Villanova recruit Isaiah Armwood at Montrose Christian. Originally a soccer player, Yarou has only been playing basketball for about three years, yet he is very skilled for his size and experience. He may still be growing and is rumored to have grown two inches in less than a year after moving to America. Yarou could be the elite big man Villanova has been hoping for. He might end up being the prized recruit of an already impressive 2009 class consisting of Maalik Wayns, Isaiah Armwood, and Taylor King.
