Meet Trevor Mbakwe, our favorite forward for the Minnesota Gophers Basketball team. We are especially like Trevor Mbakwe because he is a Minnesota-native who has always known he wanted to play basketball. Standing at 6 feet 7 inches tall, Trevor Mbakwe has also always had the size of a basketball player. Can't beat that.
He started his basketball career at Henry Sibley Senior High School in Mendota Heights, Minnesota. He also played on the Howard Pulley AAU team. After he graduated high school in 2007, Trevor Mbakwe went to Miami-Dade junior college. And thank gosh, he transferred to the University of Minnesota in 2009, and was added to the Golden Gophers Basketball roster that same year.
We love Trevor Mbakwe! What other Gophers do you want to see a spotlight on?!
