God’s Gift is planning visits.
The 6-foot-8 Nigerian forward from Erie (N.Y.) Community College will visit Cincinnati April 8.
After that, he has tentative visits set for Washington (April 15) and St. John’s (April 21).
“The only visit that is definite is Cincinnati,” said Erie coach Alex Nwora.
Nwora said Kentucky was also interested in God’s Gift, but that the Wildcats were obviously busy with their run to the Final Four.
“Kentucky is still interested in bringing him up,” Nwora said. “They wanted to wait and see what happens with the Final Four.”
God’s Gift averaged 22.3 points and 11.7 rebounds as Erie finished 28-4 and finished fourth in the NJCAA Division II Tournament.
During his two years at Erie, God’s Gift led the team to a 55-6 record.
“We went to Final Four and finished fourth in the country,” Nwora said. “He had a good career. I’ve got to go find another God’s Gift. It will be tough to replace him.”
