Each and every time Phenom Hoop Report gets to report or sees a commitment from a player we have seen over the years, it is always a fantastic day. It is great to see players achieve their goal to play at the next level and it is such a great accomplishment for that player.
Here is the latest commitment.
Player: Kenechi Nwosu/ Kanayo Nwosu
Committed to: Barton College
Evaluation for Kenechi Nwosu:
“Moving onto a player that continues to dominate various facets of the game without requiring offensive touches, Kenechi Nwosu. He’s a long, strong, athletic forward prospect with an incredibly high motor and exceptional defensive versatility. Nwosu can block shots at a high rate or defend along the perimeter with nice resistance. He moves well without the ball and finishes extremely well around the basket, which certainly includes putbacks and alley-oops. Next in his development process is working on his ability to shoot from beyond the arc, as it would make him a more lethal offensive threat. Coach Dilligard on Nwosu: “Kenechi has a world of potential. He’s very explosive with great athleticism. He did anything asked of him with a great attitude. Kenechi stepped up and was a vocal leader on the team. He worked hard and put the team first. He will need to get stronger as he gets to the next level.” Nwosu led extremely well throughout camp and should be a target for a variety of next-level programs.
Evaluation for Kanayo Nwosu:
“We look at a player that seems to consistently dominate in various facets of the game, Kanayo Nwosu. He’s a big, strong, physical, extremely athletic forward prospect with a nonstop motor and terrific defensive versatility. Nwosu overwhelms opponents with his energy, intensity, and sheer toughness, but also highlighted an improved offensive skill set in terms of polish. He knocked down jumpers, attacked the basket with ferocity, and finished above or through any amount of contact. Nwosu forces turnovers, rebounds consistently, and makes his presence felt in transition on a regular basis. Next in his development process is working to become a better passer, as it would make him a more complete player. Coach Orr on Nwosu: “Kanayo can jump out of the gym. He has an extremely high upside. Kanayo has a scorer’s mentality and is very athletic. He’s a highlight waiting to happen. He runs the floor extremely well for his size but needs to improve his court awareness and learning how to play without the ball. Kanayo was one of the top players in the camp.” Nwosu was exceptional at camp, securing the MVP award with relative ease, and should have a very productive upcoming season for Word of God.”
