Nathan Ekwu, a skilled 6-foot-7 2014 forward from Cardinal Hayes in The Bronx, will visit Seton Hall on Saturday and Fordham next weekend, Hayes coach Joe Lods told SNY.tv.
The Seton Hall visit was first reported by the New York Post.
“Nathan is going up there tomorrow,” Lods said of Seton Hall.
It remains unclear where Seton Hall — which already has five commits for 2014, including McDonald’s All-American guard Isaiah Whitehead — would get another scholarship for Ekwu, but it sounds like they believe they will have one.
Seton Hall is also awaiting word on Sunrise Christian (KS) forward Marvin Clark,who announces Monday and is considering Michigan State, Indiana, Kansas State and Seton Hall.
As for Ekwu, he averaged 16 points, 12 rebounds and 3 blocks this season.
“He’s got good skills away from the basket,” Lods said. “He’s a better shooter than people realize. He hit a decent amount of 3-pointers. He shoots the ball a lot better than people think. His upside is high.”
