NBPA: Azubuike talks new offers

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- In between sessions at the NBPA Top 100 Camp, Udoka Azubuike discussed his recent play and new scholarship offers.

Junior center prospect Udoka Azubuike was one of the top prospects at the Nike Elite 100 in St. Louis this past weekend.

"It was tough competition," Azubuike told Scout.com about the underclassmen event. "Everybody was good. It was real nice, but I think I did really good."

The competition has been even tougher at the NBPA Top 100 Camp, which tipped off on Wednesday. While Azubuike is one of the younger prospects at camp, he's more than held his own.

Azubuike, A 6-foot-10, 245-pound center, is a physical specimen that plays with effort and energy in the paint. He's a terrific area rebounder, likes to battle inside and looks to dunk everything.

"I love to dunk," he said. "I love it. I do it with passion every time I dunk."

The next step in Azubuike's development is adding to his low post arsenal and becoming a better low post scorer. He also cited his free throws as an area for improvement.

Over the weekend college coaches could begin calling 2016 recruits. The calls poured in for Azubuike and he picked up a handful of new scholarship offers.

"It's been nice," he said of his recruitment. "It's been going pretty good. I think I got an offer from Kentucky, Duke, Kansas and Georgetown"

"Before that I had an offer from Florida, Florida State, UCF and some other schools too," he added.

While Azubuike claims an offer from Duke, his high school coach Stephen McLaughlin told The Devils Den he doesn't have an official offer from Mike Krzyzewski.

What did Azubuike think about the new offers?

"I think it was nice," he said. "Seeing a team like Kentucky offer me a scholarship, I was like ‘wow.' It's great. Some of the best players in the world came from that school. It was a good experience for me."

While the offers will continue to pile up, Azubuike doesn't appear in any rush to make a college decision. He told Scout.com that he has yet to take or schedule college visits and doesn't have a timetable for making his college choice.
