Ike Anigbogu’s recruitment is starting to pick up as the 6-foot-9, 225-pound Corona (Calif.) Centennial junior center’s game continues to evolve.
“Right now I hold offers from Cal, Arizona State, San Jose State, New Mexico and a few other schools,” Anigbogu said. “USC, Arizona, Stanford and Vanderbilt are really recruiting me the hardest."
Arizona has been after Anigbogu for some time now, and the coaching staff stays in frequent contact with the four-star prospect.
“Both Miller and Coach Stoudamire call me often,” he said. “The constant contact shows me they are truly interested and that is an honor.
“Coach Stoudamire is really cool, his personality is relatable and it makes it easier to build the relationship when the coaches can relate to you as a player.”
Anigbogu plans to visit, but at the moment his focus is on improving his game in the offseason.
“Arizona is a school I’d like to get out and see, but I don’t have any visit dates planned right now," he said.
“I’m focusing on becoming a better all around player right now, but when the time comes I will look at everything and start planning visits.”
The 13th ranked center had a general idea of when he wanted to end his recruitment, but he is now likely to extend the process and look at the different programs more closely.
“I was originally looking to commit toward the end of the summer,” Anigbogu said. "I still want to expand my game over the offseason and then start looking to set up potential visits. I have enough time to make the right decision, no need to rush.”
