Eseosa brings a great work ethic and defensive prowess with her ability to block shots and run the floor. Her infectious personality and commitment to excellence will serve her well on the court and in the classroom. To further her development,  Eseosa will utilize a red shirt season to continue to evolve and adapt to the college game.”

In her final year at Matthews Covenant Day, she averaged 14.1 points, 11.3 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game. Following the season with the Lions, she earned second team NCSAA Girls’ Varsity Basketball All-American honors.

She will be the seventh addition to the Cardinals program since the end of last season. The Cardinals roster will included newcomers Eylia Love (transfer from Georgia Tech, arrived on campus in January), Jayda Curry (transfer from Cal), Hennie Van Schaik (transfer from CSU-Bakersfield), Kiki Jefferson (transfer from James Madison), Nina Rickards (grad transfer from Florida) and Sydney Taylor (grad transfer from UMass) in addition to Imafidon. They will join a team coming off its fifth-straight berth to the Elite Eight and are the only program in the country with five-straight Elite Eight berths.
