Iroegbu thinking visits

Three-star point guard Ikenna Iroegbu is about to begin taking visits

Playing at the famed Mouth of Wilson (Va.) Oak Hill Academy, Ikenna Iroegbu has bided his time behind some very talented players. Now a senior, Iroegbu looks primed to make an impact after a strong summer. Along with that, Iroegbu is beginning to narrow his focus in his recruitment.

One of the high points of the summer for Iroegbu was the Reebok Breakout Camp where he played as well as about any player there. That set the table for his trip to the Reebok Training Summit in Boston where he worked alongside NBA point guards John Wall and Jameer Nelson.

"It is a great experience," said Iroegbu. "I am very fortunate to have Reebok fly me out to Boston to workout with pros. I am just real blessed and happy I got the call for it."

Recruiting wise Iroegbu says numerous schools remain in close contact with him trying to land his services.

"Recruiting wise I am with Memphis, Washington State, Virginia Tech, Central Florida, Charleston, and that is pretty much it," he said.

At this point Iroegbu says he is beginning to set up visits with Memphis, Virginia Tech, Charleston, and potentially another school and that they all are even.

One school that is clearly making him a priority is Memphis.

"Coach (Josh) Pastner is a great coach and Coach Aki (Collins) is also a great guy," he said of Memphis. "They are doing great things at Memphis, and I would like to see the campus and just see what it is like."

Also new Head Coach James Johnson at Virginia Tech is making sure that Iroegbu feels wanted in Blacksburg.

"I have been to a Virginia Tech football game and it was real live," he said. "I like the facilities there a lot, and I just want to see everything there."

Iroegbu is originally from California, and one West Coast school is hoping to bring him back closer to his roots.

"Washington State is on the West Coast and in a great league," he said of the Cougars. "Great guards come out of the Pac 12, so that is what stands out to me about Washington State."

For now Iroegbu is taking in the entire process and plans to make his visits before coming to a decision.
