2016 Intro: Ike Anigbogu
One of the top center prospects out west in 2016 is 6-foot-9, 230-pound Corona (Calif.) Centennial's Ike Anigbogu. An athletic center with a terrific frame with wide shoulders and long arms, Anigbogu is still raw but rebounds well and has nice touch around the basket. The development of his motor and skill set will dictate his ultimate stock, but he has a chance to be a very highly recruited kid. "I'm rebound-hungry; I try to get as many boards as I can," Anigbogu said. "I score on a lot of putbacks. I'm very competitive in the post and try to help my team out. "I need to make quicker decisions in the post when I get the ball and improve my jump hooks and stuff like that so I can score not just deep into the post but further out." Anigbogu has heard from Stanford, UCLA, San Diego and San Diego State, and he grew up rooting for two of those schools. "I love Stanford's academics," he said. "That's a really big thing for my family; that's our main objective. I've been dreaming about that school for a really long time. "UCLA is just close and I like the environment. My sister goes there on a full ride scholarship for academics." Academics will obviously play a role in Anigbogu's ultimate decision, along with some other factors. "Education, the environment, the coaching staff and players," he said.
