Another 2015 prospect has decided to announce his college choice this coming week, with 6-foot-8 small forward Ogugua “O.G.” Anunoby stating Sunday night that he will do so on Tuesday. Anunoby made this news public via his Twitter account.
The four schools still in contention for the 6-foot-8 Anunoby are Georgia, Iowa, Indiana and Ole Miss (in case you can’t see the embedded tweet). Anunoby attends Jefferson City HS in Jefferson City, Missouri, and he played for the Team Thad program this summer. Among the players Anunoby played with on Team Thad are Florida commit Chris Chiozza (point guard), Ole Miss commit Terence Davis (shooting guard), three-star 2015 shooting guard LaGerald Vick and four-star 2016 point guard Jaylen Fisher.
Georgia has two players currently committed in its 2015 class, with one of those players being small forward E’Torrion Wilridge. Wilridge verbally committed to Mark Fox’s program earlier this weekend. As for Ole Miss, in addition to Davis the Rebels have received a verbal commitment from small forward Donte Fitzpatrick. Andy Kennedy does have to account for the fact that he’ll lose multiple players from his perimeter rotation at the end of the 2014-15 season, most notably guard Jarvis Summers.
Indiana has one player committed in the Class of 2015, power forward Juwan Morgan, and they’re a young team at the small and power forward positions. The lone scholarship upperclassman at either of those positions is junior Hanner Mosquera-Perea. Lastly, Iowa has three commitments in its 2015 class (guards Andrew Fleming and Brandon Hutton, and small forward Ahmad Wagner) and it’s a group expected to help the Hawkeyes account for the loss of Josh Oglesby and Aaron White at the end of the 2014-15 campaign.
One of those four programs will add a player capable of helping them both on the boards and defensively, with the slender Anunoby likely to benefit from a college strength program upon his arrival on campus. Anunoby has taken official visits to three of the four programs remaining on his list, with Ole Miss being the exception.
