    Zeke Nnaji, the 6-foot-11 power forward from Hopkins (MN) and D1 Minnesota, took his third official visit to UCLA this past weekend after visiting Kansas and Arizona the last two weeks.

    “It was a great experience as we got to watch practice and closed scrimmage with Pepperdine [on Saturday],” said his father, Apham. “Again, like the other schools it was not hard to see why his skill sets are needed.

    “He also met with Russ [Westbrook] who was working out with his team. It is one of the biggest markets [and] they say will be a good fit for Zeke.”

    Nnaji next visits Baylor (Oct. 26-28) and Purdue (Nov. 2-4). His father said he will decide about Nov. 24.
