Ikenna Okwarabizie, a 6-9 JC post player from Tyler (Tex.), is on an official visit to UCLA this weekend, according to sources.
Okwarabizie is described as a "bruiser," at about 250 pounds.
He reportedly has scholarship offers from Iowa State, Iowa, VCU and Texas, with recent interest from Kansas.
Okwarabizie is originally from Nigeria, moving to the U.S. in 2012. After a year in Saint Louis, he enrolled at Sioux City (Iowa) East High in 2013. Due to issues with his Nigerian high school transcript, he wasn't NCAA qualified out of high school as part of the 2014 class, but was deemed qualified by the NCAA last fall to transfer after just one season at a JC. This fall he will enroll at a four-year college as a sophomore, with three years of eligibility remaining.
Reportedly, Okwarabizie is a good student.
UCLA showed interest in Okwarabizie last fall, and, when Okwarabizie chose to not sign with any school last November, the Bruins followed up with interest this spring.
Iowa has been recruiting Okwarabizie for a long time.
