Four-star big man Michael Nwoko says Providence has ‘big plans for me’
By ADAM ZAGORIAMichael Nwoko, the 6-foot-10, 240-pound center from Prolific (CA) Prep, took an official visit to Providence this past weekend and likes what they have to offer.
“They have big plans for me!,” he said by text. “They love my game and made me feel like it’s home. [I could] come in, start and contribute on a big level and stage.”
He added he “definitely” feels the Friars are making him a priority.
“Michael’s rate of improvement is impressive,” said Prolific Prep coach Ryan Bernardi. “He has great upside due to his physical presence, athleticism and rapidly improving ball skills. Michael is also an elite student and great person.”
Nwoko has previously taken official visits to Vanderbilt (June 22) and Northwestern (June 30) and visits Georgia Tech this weekend, Miami (Sept. 23) and UCLA (Oct. 7). Miami, UCLA and Georgia Tech were in to see him this week.
Georgia Tech also hosts four-star combo guard Vasean Allette on an official this weekend, and 2024 prospects Jahki Howard and Derrion Reid will take unofficials.
