Obekpa Hosts Trio of Schools

By Adam Zagoria on September 12, 2011, 3:48PM

Chris Obekpa, a 6-foot-9 Nigerian power forward at Our Savior New American on Long Island, hosted head coaches from UCLA, Providence and Cincinnati on Sunday for in-home visits.

Ben Howland had Phil Mathews with him. Ed Cooley brought Andre LaFleur and Mick Cronin was accompanied by Darren Savino.

“Everything went well with each visit,” said assistant coach Eric Jaklitsch of Our Savior. “They all expressed their interest in Christopher and how much they want him.”

A native of Nigeria, Obekpa also plays sweeper on the school soccer team and was thus unavailable the first two days of the contact period.

He takes the SAT Oct. 1, and cannot take any officials until.

“We spoke about possibly taking an unofficial to Providence,” Jaklitsch said. “We spoke to UCLA and Cincinnati about taking official visits out there once he gets his SAT and everything.”
