In his own words:
"I was planning on making a statement (at Peach Jam), because, right now, they’ve got me ranked No. 84 and I know that’s not where I’m supposed to be,” said Ejiofor. “This is the opportunity for me to prove myself, to everyone else, that I should be ranked a lot higher than I am right now.
“The one thing I’d like to show is that I can step outside more and score,” he added. “Nowadays, coaches love bigs who can do a lot more than just score in the post. That’s exactly what I can do. I can do a lot more than just score in the post. Wherever my coach wants me to play, that’s where I’ll play.”
