Sedee Keita is a 6'9" power forward from Middletown, Delaware who put up an impressive display at the Reebok Breakout this past weekend in Philadelphia. Playing against mostly older players, Keita's performances earned him scholarship offers from both Iowa State and VCU on the weekend, with a couple more schools following suit on Monday.

Keita was a class of 2015 prospect, but recently announced that he would be transferring to Vermont Academy, and reclassifying to 2016. Not much is known about Keita as he's just bursting onto the scene following the Reebok, but you can read a nice review of Keita here from the Pitt Jam Fest where he's regarded as a potential elite prospect.
Judging from the tweets from the Reebok, this is a smart offer by Jay Wright early, as he looks to continue his recent recruiting of the WE-R-1 AAU program.
