High school big man Goodluck Okonoboh will announce his college decision Thursday night at halftime of the Louisiana Monroe-Western Kentucky football game on ESPNU.
Okonoboh posted an image to Instagram Wednesday evening to tell fans the date and time of his announcement.
The Massachusetts native is considering Indiana, Ohio State, Duke, Florida and UNLV, and has been touted as one of the top frontcourt players in the class of 2014. ESPN ranks him 21st overall in his class, while Rivals puts him at No. 32.
Okonoboh is in his senior season at Wilbraham and Monson Academy and is a former AAU teammate of 2013 NBA lottery pick Nerlens Noel. He has taken visits to UNLV and Indiana in the past month and the Hoosiers have long been considered a favorite to land him. He is close with 2013 Indiana commit Noah Vonleh, another former AAU teammate.
Okonoboh is known primarily as a disciplined shot-blocker who can move quickly and alter a shot without fouling. His offensive game is still a work in progress, but scouting reports say he can finish at the rim proficiently.
