October 2, 2013 - Fresh off his official visit to Georgetown last weekend, Class of 2014 center Chinanu Onuaku Friday reportedly will choose between the Hoyas, Louisville and Miami. This, per a Washington Post article which quoted Onuaku's high school coach, Lou Wilson.
Onuaku, 6'10" and 250 pounds, has officially visited these three final schools, with obviously no more scheduled. In addition to last week's Hilltop jaunt, Chinanu, nicknamed 'Nu-Nu', toured Louisville on 8.30, and around 9.13 traveled to Miami. For the record, he first scheduled to visit Georgetown the weekend of 9.20, but rescheduled for a week later.
Onuaku is a shot blocking, rebounding pivot player, one that's vocal and active on the court. Offensively, Chinanu,whose brother Arinze starred at Syracuse, can hit 12 foot jumpers - particularly via the baseline turnaround - as well as score on stick backs and alley-oops. Passing is also a strong point for him.

In terms of development, Nu-Nu must work on his back to the basket/paint footwork and overall shooting form; the latter from midrange being fairly effective but delivered in a manner that can minimize his height. Focused time in the weight room is also necessary.
Rivals.com has ranked Onuaku 65th in the Class of 2014. He's been affixed a four star designation.
Two days ago on Premium Court we discussed Onuaku's now widely believed leaning towards Lousiville. Information regarding possible pluses afforded by G'town, as seen by some on the ground, is also there.
