By Kevin Daniels, 05/25/22, 10:00AM CDT


Name: Ugonna Kingsley Onyenso

Height: 7'0"

HS: Putnam Science Academy

Grassroots: Team England/New York Jayhawks

Position: C


Calling Card: Paint Enforcement/Defensive Activity

Strengths: His physical tools were eye-catching even before the tip. Ugonna possesses elite size and length, which supports his ability as a rim protector. He also has good balance, feet, and athleticism, thoroughly checking off boxes to make him a prospect to evaluate moving forward. Defensively, he controls the paint with his instincts to cover ground, but offensively, he catches in the dunker spot and finishes at the rim with no hesitation.

Areas to Improve: Extending his range while developing a go-to move and feel on the block will be the next step in this growth. Developing his touch around the paint will make him a two-way force.

Athleticism: 9

Offers: Connecticut, Kansas, LSU, Ole Miss, Georgia, Providence, Georgetown, Texas Tech, Washington State, Clemson, and Seton Hall
