Five-star 2022 center Vince Iwuchukwu announced his commitment to USC today on Instagram Live with Shams Charania.
Iwuchukwu, a seven-foot big man, chose the Trojans over other schools such as UCLA, Texas, Kansas and Baylor. He'll be playing his final season of high school hoops for powerhouse Montverde Academy after transferring from La Lumiere.
The Trojans have set up bigs for success in recent years, most notably with 2021 No. 3 overall draft pick Evan Mobley and 2020 No. 6 overall pick Onyeka Okongwu. Here are preliminary thoughts on Iwuchukwu from Basketball News NBA Draft analyst Matt Babcock:
"At seven feet with a 7-foot-4 wingspan, Vincent Iwuchukwu possesses impressive physical tools to go along with a solid overall skill set. As one of the top big men in the high school class of 2022, Iwuchukwu is certainly on my radar as an NBA prospect. Needless to say, he is a terrific pickup for the USC Trojans."
