Congolese big man David Oyona will join Partizan Belgrade this season, sources told Eurohopes. The 6'10 standout played for Sunrise Christian Academy (KS) in his freshman year in high school.

Oyona, who is joining one of the powerhouses in the European circuit, is considered one of the top players in the 2023-class holding offers from Auburn, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and TCU. The Democratic Republic of Congo native —he moved to the US three years ago– is a great rim protector thanks to his elite physical tools standing at 6'10 with a 7'2 wingspan.

The reigning ANGT Belgrade Champion, Partizan Belgrade adds size to his depth after losing key players such as Stefan Todorovic (Prolific Prep), Luka Kovacevic (GBA) and Nikola Dimitrijevic (Berkshire).
