Rumors swirled on Tuesday that rising senior Nkereuwem Okoro was on the verge of a commitment.

Sources told that Okoro could be ready to commit to Iowa State at any moment. Okoro, however, denied it.

“No it’s not [true],” Okoro said. “I haven’t committed yet."

The 6-foot-4 2012 prospect from St. Raymond’s (N.Y.) listed offers from Pittsburgh and Seton Hall, in addition to the Cyclones. Arizona, St. John's and Xavier have shown interest in Okoro at one time or another. 

“I don’t have a timeline,” Okoro said. “I don’t know where I want to commit as of right now.”

Okoro is a strong, hard-working swingman who prefers to score from the free-throw line and closer. He can score from the mid-range and also finishes well in the paint. Defensively, he’s outstanding, using his non-stop motor to make plays at that end of the floor.

While he might not be ready to make a decision just yet, Okoro knows what he is looking for in a school.

“My relationship with the coaching staff and how I comfortable I feel about the school,” he said.
