Sim Bhullar, the Indian-Canadian high school basketball stand out, has committed to the Xavier Musketeers.
Standing at 7’4”, weighing in at approximately 330 lbs, Sim is “a massive post prospect, with a great set of hands and impressive touch around the basket. It will be interesting to see how he fits into [Xavier head coach] Chris Mack’s system” says Scout.com.
“It was a great situation for me and I felt extremely comfortable with the coaching staff and family there. I just really thought it would be the best fit for me,” Sim Bhullar said. “On all the visits I had fun and loved everything about Xavier.”
Bhullar is from Toronto, played a few years at Kiski Prep in Western Pennsylvania, then spent most of this past season at Huntington Prep in West Virginia. While he is technically class of 2012, Sim could potentially get himself in position to graduate from high school this year, enroll at Xavier in the fall, and spend the year as a redshirt.
The Musketeers currently have a 7-foot center on the roster, Kenny Frease. Frease has come a long way since arriving on campus, and as a junior posted numbers of 11.7 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 55% shooting from the field. “They envision me being like Kenny Frease. We came in with similar body types and they completely remodeled his body. Now he’s killing and will probably have a chance to go to the NBA. Seeing how they got him to buy in and get into that kind of shape and the way they worked with him in the beginning showed me that the Xavier staff could help me get better.”
Notable NBA players who have attended Xavier include New Orleans’ 2-time All-Star forward David West, and 2-time NBA Champion James Posey. Both were the 18th overall pick in their respective NBA Draft.
Sim has a 7’3” brother, Tanveer, who is a class of 2013 prospect, currently playing at Montverde Academy in Florida.
