    Mackenzie Mgbako, the 6-foot-8 forward from Gill St. Bernard’s, is adding a series of high-major offers this month.

    In the last week, Mgbako, 15, added offers from Seton Hall, Maryland and Auburn to previous offers from St. John’s, Rutgers and Bryant.

    “The kid has the whole package,” Gill coach Mergin Sina said. “He shoots the ball extremely well, handles the basketball at 6-8 with ease and has a great feel for the game. Once he gets a little stronger, look out!

    “He reminds me of a younger Kevin Durant. Upside through the roof!”

    Mgbako is one of four New Jersey players ranked in the Top 25 of the ESPN Class of 2023 rankings.

    Camden’s D.J. Wagner is No. 1, Roselle Catholic guard Simeon Welcher No. 8, Don Bosco Prep forward Akil Watson No. 11 and Mgbako No. 19.
