Remember the Name: Paschal Chukwu

The one word to describe Paschal Chukwu is raw.  He’s a 7’2” and 220 pound center from Nigeria.  As of right now he is primarily a shot blocker and rebounded that has used his length and athletic gifts to score around the basket.  He’s in the 2014 class and plays for Fairfield Prep School.  He’s garnered some major attention since his play in Orlando on his Connecticut Basketball Club. He averaged 12.8 points, 12 boards, and 7 blocks per game in the S.C.C. tournament, Class LL State Finals.  He’s got great wingspan, foot speed, and is a hustles, often times being the first person to dive on the floor for loose balls.  He’s emerged as the best prospect in Connecticut in his class because of his tremendous upside.  With offers from Maryland, B.C., UConn, George Mason, N.C. State, Notre Dame, Providence, Purdue, St. John’s, and Xavier, Chukwu has plenty of options to pick a school that can utilize his talents the most.  He has a good head on his shoulders and hasn’t let the hype that is building around him cloud his judgments, focusing solely on school and his game.  Whoever has the privilege to land this prospect is going to get not only a great basketball player but a fine young man.
