Ikenna Iroegbu has been up and down over the past few years. Sometimes, he looks like a top-50 player, while other times he is turnover-prone and really struggles. During the Fab 48 in July, though, Iroegbu impressed nearly everyone with his consistency.
If he can keep that up in college, Ken Bone has a good get on his hands – Iroegbu committed to Washington State on Monday night.
Just committed to the zzu!! #WSU...— Ikenna Iroegbu (@Be_LikeIKE) October 1, 2012
Iroegbu, a 6-foot-1 native of California who plays at Oak Hill Academy (Va.), is extremely quick and has the ability to get into the lane against most defenders. He loves to push the ball in transition and is extremely tough to slow down when attacking the basket with momentum. Moreover, Iroegbu has improved his outside shot and is very difficult to guard when his shot is falling.
He is Washington State's first commitment in the class of 2013. Virginia Tech was also involved with Iroegbu before he committed.
With Reggie Moore being dismissed from the team last month, Iroegbu could be expected to make an immediate impact in Pullman next month.
- Richard Pitino continues to make an impact at Florida International. On Sunday night, talented guard Daquein McNeil pledged to the Golden Panthers. McNeil had interest and offers from higher-caliber schools, but FIU won out. McNeil averaged 12.4 points and consistently got to the free-throw line during the EYBL season.
- Colorado has the makings of another very good recruiting class. Jaron Hopkins, a top-100 player, is the standout, but Tre'Shaun Lexing should also make an impact. The fluid lefty committed to the Buffaloes over the weekend. He is ranked among the top-25 small forwards in the country.
- Harvard has Zena Edosomwan as the centerpiece of its 2013 class, but the Crimson suffered a major loss on Monday: Noah Allen decommitted. Allen is a 6-foot-5 prospect from California who had offers from Pac-12 schools before selecting Harvard.
