Joshua Ojianwuna gave his pledge to Scott Drew and the Baylor Bears on Wednesday evening.  The 6-10, 220-pound center is originally from Nigeria but is playing at the NBA Basketball Academy in Australia where current Baylor big man Jonathan Tchamwa Tchatchoua honed his skills.

Ojianwuna is a perfect fit for Baylor.  He’s been described as having many of the same strengths as Tchamwa Tchatchoua:  infectious enthusiasm, high motor, great rebounder, shot blocker and finisher around the rim.

He averaged 10.4 ppg and 8 rebounds for the NBA Global Academy in a season that was cut short by Covid lockdowns.

So, maybe this is the reason Iwuchukwu ended up at USC? Or were we waiting to see his decision and when he went USC, then we went with this guy? Anyone know?

Watched more video of this guy. LOVE IT! He runs the floor with the same enthusiasm as JTT. You just don't find big guys like that often. Lots of skills, albeit a little raw, but that's fine because there's no staff in the country who has been consistently better than Drew's in developing bigs over their careers. Count me as excited as heck!

when you look back at the big men from Africa that we have signed, how can you not be excited about Ojianwuna? The players they are, the work ethic, the ambassadors for the school. Welcome Josh!

I definitely remember him, from Kenya I think. Talented prospect but had bad feet if memory serves me
