Ochai Agbaji commits to Kansas



  • @BShark Just jokes to fit the narrative. Nothing of substance. There have been people say he’s gone all along. I’m not one of them.

    Had a couple IU fans on Twitter argue it last night. Their response was, “How is Billy Preston doing?” so it went well.

    The same Billy Preston that IU was recruiting and really wanted. Odd. :joy:



  • @BShark I forgot about that…IRONY? This will be some poetic justice if we get Langford. Most think Vandy and KU are the only leaders of the three leaders. But, if IU is in the picture and think they are just not to the degree the “experts” say. We have a chance to steal yet another recruit from IU and Archie Miller. We all know how Sean Miller has stolen several recruits from KU. But we did get Withey too.

    I could really see OA red shirting and developing under Romeo. OA could be an even greater factor after his RS year, if/when RL heads to the league. OA is going to be a really special PP (Program Player). This is going to get really interesting…JHawk interesting.

    Also, hope everyone saw Grimes’ Tweet. “Naah…it (alley oops) will happen in AFH!” Love it. I hope Grimes knows something most of us don’t know.



  • What else can it be but…ChaiHawk…:smile:

    Damn Orca whale Miller. :sweat:

    Ayton stings. Josiah Turner and Tarc, eh, I’m kind of glad.

    It’s kind of crazy how many perceived KU locks he has flipped.

    After announcing that he’s committing to @KUHoops yesterday, where was @youngoch at 6am this morning?!?!? In the gym, working on his game. Incredibly excited for this guy and his future! @Northmen_MBB #OPtoKU





  • @dylans @wissox I thought Azibuke was Nigerian for: With Authority?

    Ukoka (I dunka) Azibuke (with authority!)





  • @BShark

    Love how he says Rock Chalk Jayhawk…let it play over and over and over…Rock Chalk Jayhawk…

    Say it again…Ochai



  • Forgive the title maker but here are highlights of his 41 pts in 3 quarters game.



  • Per the Wisconsin 247 guy Evan Flood Agbaji was going to commit to Wisconsin after visiting but the KU offer changed everything. So we pretty much offered just in time. :grinning:

    I think he’s actually from Wisconsin

    Wow. Flood is usually pretty reliable about things too.



  • @blackmild33 Correct, he was born there and grew up there until he was 5 or 6.

    @BeddieKU23 I tend to believe it too. Didn’t read as sour grapes. The Wisconsin guys were also one of the first to pick KU in the crystal ball after the offer.







  • @BShark That vert already has me fan-girling so hard.

  • @Kcmatt7 lol

    He’s going to be a good player for us in time I think. He is a hard worker and his game finally caught up to his athleticism this year. He is an above average shooter and needs to work on his handle. His rebounding stats speak to his effort, even in HS Doke was a poor rebounder.



  • @BShark I think he looks more put together size-wise than LeGerald, but equally as athletic. At least when you compare HS mixtapes.

    If he can shoot at a 35-40% clip from trey, especially from the corner, he will flourish as a Wing player here. KU is going to have one chippy, gritty, tough bunch over the next 4 or 5 seasons. I can’t wait.

    He shot it very well this year but KS HS hoops isn’t exactly a great barometer. You can tell he has already been in the weight room.

    Garrett, McCormack, Agbaji and Dotson are all guys you hear are anything it takes to win guys. Proved true with Garrett already. Have heard good things about KJ there too. No slight on other players, these guys just have that EXTRA, uncommon grit.



  • @BShark

    Agbaji is actually playing on the Missouri side of the state line. Their season is over after losing last week to Park Hill. Oak Park played a pretty solid schedule, so his games were fairly challenging, though not up to the level of prep school or some of the bigger states.



  • Been hearing good things.
