2019 big man Zeke Nnaji visits Arizona, UCLA up next
By ADAM ZAGORIAZeke Nnaji, the 6-foot-11 power forward from Hopkins (MN) and D1 Minnesota, took his second official visit to Arizona this past weekend after visiting Kansas a week ago.
“It was really good,” said Apham Nnaji, the player’s father. “We watched practice and their Red Blue game today.”
Nico Mannion and Josh Green, both of whom have already committed to Arizona for 2019, also attended, as did uncommitted forward Jeremiah Robinson-Earl.
“There’s obvious need for Zeke’s skill set on that team and with the boys committed already they think that Zeke is their final component,” Apham said.
Nnaji next visits UCLA (Oct. 19-21), Baylor (Oct. 26-28) and Purdue (Nov. 2-4). His father said he will decide about Nov. 24.
