One of the top overall prospects in Arizona's 2018 class is Desert Vista High School's long and athletic 6-foot-8, 190 pound rising senior post Christian Anigwe. Anigwe is regarded among the elite overall post prospects in Arizona's 2018 class, and currently has two different scholarship offers for himself heading into Vegas this week.
Anigwe has progressed a great deal over the past year as a player, and this spring and summer he has come into his own as a college prospect - competing at a much higher level and playing much more aggressive in the paint - showing much more activity on the floor and becoming a much stronger finisher.
As a result, Anigwe has received two different scholarship offers for himself from Cal Poly and Central Arkansas. He also has received strong interest from such schools as Davidson, Montana State, UC-Davis, and many others looking to get involved.
He took an unofficial recruiting visit to Davidson recently, and really enjoyed his visit.
"It was a really cool visit. The climate was really different - smaller class sizes and high academics. It was a lot different than Arizona, but I really enjoyed my time there."
Anigwe is a nice talent that has serious upside for the future, and should raise many eyebrows this week in Vegas. He has very good activity on the floor and competes hard inside the paint. As he gains more physical size, he will see his game progress and develop a great deal.
Anigwe competes with his club program, the Arizona Power Black, and has had a strong showing throughout the club season. I expect for him to continue to receive many more offers over the next couple weeks.
Anigwe is the younger brother of current Cal top-rated girls performer Kristine Anigwe. He is also an excellent student and carries a 3.9 CUM GPA, so he will have no problems qualifying academically and will be an ambassador of any program, on and off the court.
I will continue to follow the college recruitment and development as a player of Anigwe closely, and bring you any updates as the continue to develop.
Arizona Hoop Review Scouting Report: Anigwe is regarded as the top post player in Arizona's 2018 class. While he is still a sleeper prospect, he has excellent potential as a college prospect. He has excellent length of body and is still growing into his lengthy frame. Needs to add much more physical size and strength to maximize his potential as a player/prospect. Has solid low-post moves and is capable of facing up and making shots from the perimeter out to 18 feet. An active rebounder and shotblocker. A good finisher. Runs the floor well. Has excellent potential over time and is a good prospect for a mid-major program that can develop him.
