Former Hopkins high school and Arizona Wildcats big man Zeke Nnaji is entering the 2020 NBA Draft. The American player of Nigerian descent made the announcement via a post on Twitter.

“After much prayer and deliberation with my family, I have decided to make myself available for the NBA draft,”I can’t wait to see what the next level in my life’s journey will bring.” Nnaji wrote on social media.
Nnaji played briefly with another nigerian descent going to the draft, Oturu for the AAU team, Howard Pulley.
Nnaji, the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year and first team All Pac-12, is hiring Adam Pensack to represent him. After averaging an efficient 16.1 points and 8.6 rebounds per game and exceeding expectations after entering the program as a four-star recruit, we only hope he continues to do the same when he enters the league.
