Adou Thiero has been the talk of WPIAL basketball this season as he and Markus Frank led Quaker Valley to a WPIAL 4A Championship over Montour and to the PIAA Finals.
Following a season in which he averaged 23.3 points and 10 rebounds per game, Thiero received his first D-1 offer from Duquesne and also was receiving interest from programs such as Pitt, Ohio State, Marquette, Cincinnati, West Virginia and Indiana. Today, Thiero not only received interest, but an offer from one of the Blue Blood programs in the country, the Kentucky Wildcats.
After traveling to Hershey to watch him in person against Neumann-Goretti, John Calipari made an in-home visit to Adou and officially extended him an offer.

During his freshman season, Thiero traveled to Kentucky and took part in a basketball camp conducted by Calipari and his staff. The ties to the Moon Twp. native don’t stop there.
Adou’s father, Almamy, played college basketball for Calipari, when he was head coach of the Memphis Tigers.
