Kai Sotto finishes his secondary education, graduating from The Miami School in Ohio

Academics never stopped for Kai Sotto amid his pursuit of the NBA dream in the United States.

The 18-year-old finished his secondary education on Thursday, April 1 (Friday, April 2, Manila time), graduating from The Miami School in Hamilton, Ohio.

Sotto first attended Ateneo High School, which he led to a UAAP Season 80 juniors championship, before he left the Philippines to train in the US in a bid to become the first homegrown Filipino to reach the NBA.

In the US, the 7-foot-3 big man suited up for The Skills Factory in Atlanta and signed to play for Ignite, the professional pathway program of the NBA G League.

Despite his hoop commitments, Sotto continued to attend school in Ohio.

It is also in Ohio where Sotto is building his Kaiju Global Academy, a premier sports facility that will feature basketball courts, a football field, and an indoor track oval. – Rappler.com
