ESPN No. 39 ranked high school senior center Kenny Nwuba has committed to UCLA.

 

The 6-11 defensive-minded big man led basketball power Oak Hill Academy (VA) in blocks last season, averaging 6.3 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 2.4 rejections on 70 percent field goal shooting.

 

Has has transferred to Huntington Prep (WVA) for his upcoming senior season.

 

“Kenneth felt he would flourish in that fast pace, west coast offense that [UCLA coach] Steve [Alford] runs,” Nwuba’s MBA AAU coach Omhar Carter told Scout. “His frame and athleticism allows him to play both [the] forward and center position.”

 

Carter thinks UCLA is the perfect fit for his star center.

 

“UCLA loses three post players and there is an opportunity for immediate playing time at a historic Blue Blood school under a legendary coach and staff,” Carter, told Zagsblog “At 6-11 with a 44-inch vertical and high skill set, Kenneth feels that he brings another dimension to what’s already a powerhouse.”

 

His Huntington Prep coach Arkell Bruce loves Nwuba’s game.

 

“He’s a great defender/rebounder with an underrated offensive game,” said Bruce. “He brings elite athleticism with great shot blocking and rebounding prowess.”

 

The Bruins beat out the likes of Maryland, LSU, Mississippi State, Georgia Tech, and Arizona State to land Nwuba.

 

At UCLA, Nwuba will join fellow 2018 recruits No. 47 Jules Bernard and No. 66 David Singleton III.
