Pitt Target Emmanuel Ugboh Picks Tulsa



Pitt target Emmanuel Ugboh has committed to Tulsa, he announced on Twitter on Friday.

Ugboh, a junior college player from Iowa Western Community College, made an official visit to Pitt last week and Tulsa and Pitt were his final two choices.

The 6-foot-11, 250-pound power forward from Lagos, Nigeria also had major-conference offers from Arizona, UConn, Kansas State, LSU, Nebraska, Ole Miss, Rutgers and Washington State. He was rated as a three-star prospect by Rivals.

Ugboh is the latest in what has been a series of forwards to visit and include Pitt in their final group of choices, but ultimately decide to play elsewhere.

On Sunday, Prolific Prep (California) center Ibrahima Diallo picked Ohio State over the Panthers.

Pitt remains involved with junior college transfer and Virginia Tech bounce-back Khadim Sy (6-foot-10, 245 pounds) and high school senior Olivier Robinson-Nkamhoua, a 6-foot-8, 210-pound forward from Helsinki, Finland that played at Bishop Walsh High School in Cumberland, Maryland.

Jeff Capel is awaiting a signed national letter of intent from Scotland Campus Sports forward Karim Coulibaly, who gave Pitt his verbal commitment. Pitt already has two players signed in this class: Gerald Drumgoole from La Lumiere School (La Porte, Indiana) and Justin Champagnie from Bishop Loughlin (Brooklyn, New York).

Uh oh! My optimism is fading. Still, if they land Sy they’ll be ok, and if they also get Nkamhoua they’ll be great next year.
