Winston Salem Christian National and Coach Antonio Lowe already have proven themselves to be a powerhouse program that has a chance to make a ton of noise this year. They have plenty of D1 talent, some are already committed to programs, while others will be heading to programs down the road. When you talk about WS Christian though, you know one thing that this team will always have is size. Right now, they bring size with 2024 Chol Machot, 2024 Lewis Walker, 2024 Brayden Crump, and others. However, this is a team that recently announced big news, as we have a new name coming into North Carolina in the Class of 2026, and he is a big one.
2026 6’11 Kosi Mgbejiofor is now in North Carolina and will be joining the team, giving this team even MORE size. With Mgbejiofor on the ream, they will now be able to rotate 7-footers in and out, anchoring the paint, and bringing a strong presence to the court. This is a young big man to really watch out for, as he brings big-time talent and potential, and he should only add more to his game with Coach Lowe and WS Christian.
Check out what we have said before about his game:
“As a 6-foot-11 big man in the Class of 2026, calling Mgbejiofor “special” isn’t really going out on a limb. He’s long, mobile, energetic, and already anchors the paint at a high level defensively. Mgbejiofor is an exceptional rim protector with phenomenal instincts for blocking shots and altering literally everything within his area. He genuinely forces opponents to think twice before entering the paint. Mgbejiofor has an impressive understanding of timing, angles, and general movement for someone of his size and age. He’s a very active two-way rebounder who knows how to locate a guard and run the floor in transition. Mgbejiofor looked comfortable throwing some challenging outlet passes, and could continue progressing in that area over the coming years. Offensively, he’s developing but already knows how to make a consistent impact as an athletic finisher—both in transition and half-court sets. Mgbejiofor doesn’t look (or need) to really fight for touches, as his opportunities seem to naturally come through the flow of an offense. That being said, Mgbejiofor’s offensive arsenal will only continue to expand. He possesses an incredible frame accompanied by tools and abilities that simply cannot be taught.
