Middle School Basketball Star in Lynn Already Receiving College Scholarship Offers

A basketball prodigy from Lynn, Massachusetts, is already receiving college scholarship offers despite being in middle school. Bella Owumi started playing basketball at a young age and has since played on the varsity team while still in middle school. Her skills have earned her five college scholarship offers, including one from the University of Rhode Island when she was in seventh grade. Other offers have come from Boston College and Harvard.

Owumi’s coach, Jeff Newhall, describes her as a player who makes him look good because of her natural abilities. Owumi’s hoop dreams include playing in the WNBA, but for now, she is focused on taking it one basket at a time.
