Milwaukee bred guard Victor Nwagbaraocha added his first official scholarship offer after Eastern Illinois attended one of his games and decided he could be a key piece to their puzzle on the Division I level.
“Unreal,” he said following his first Division I offer. “I’ve been looking forward to this moment my whole life.”
Texas State and Omaha, among others are tracking him as well.
The 6-2 guard, currently playing at Highland Community College, helped the Cougars to a 27 win season and a conference and regional championship.
After adding his first official offer, Nwagbaraocha doesn’t plan on doing anything different on the court. He isn’t going to go out and try to score every time he touches the ball, nor make the fancy passes that end up on a highlight.
Nwagbaraocha plans on just staying consistent with his current formula and hope more schools are attracted.
“I can’t really do anything more now but keep working on my game,” he explained. “And trusting the process.”
Nwagbaraocha said that coaches like his ability to score rebound and defend. They also enjoy his athleticism and what he can bring to the table on both ends of the floor.
This recruitment is just starting and I expect more offers will start flying his way after another year on the junior college circuit.
