No. 16 PF Amanze Ngumezi Commits To Georgia

247sports’ No. 16 ranked high school power forward Amanze “Slim” Ngumezi has committed to the University of Georgia.

 

The 6-9, 235-pound big man averaged 12.8 points and 10 rebounds this season for Johnson HS (Savannah, GA), leading the team to the second round of the Class 3A playoffs.

 

“Basketball has done a lot for me and I am happy to announce that I will spend my college career at the University of Georgia,” Ngumezi said via Twitter. “Why not stay in my [home] state and do what I love? Thank you coach [Mark] Fox for the scholarship.”

 

Ngumezi said choosing the Bulldogs wasn’t just a basketball decision.

 

“My decision had a lot to do with the education there,” Ngumezi told the Savannah Morning News. “All of the student-athletes end up graduating, and it’s more than just basketball at Georgia. I know the basketball is going to stop bouncing for me some day, and I want that degree to fall back on.”

 

Scout’s Brian Snow believes that Georgia is getting an impact player in Ngumezi.

 

“At 6-foot-9 Ngumezi is a very good athlete who is tough [and] strong,” wrote Snow. [He] has all the tools to be able to play the power forward or center position at a high level in the SEC.”

 

The Bulldogs beat out the likes of Clemson, Tennessee, Wichita State, Virginia Tech, UAB, and Temple to land Ngumezi.
