Nwogbo appeared in 24 games for the Green Wave this year averaging 1 point and 2 rebounds in just over 4 minutes of play per game. He is originally from Lithonia, Georgia where he helped guide his team to the GISA Class AAA State Championship with a record of 34-2 as a senior. He also averaged averaged 19 points and 12 rebounds per game during his high school career.
Jayson Gee now has a year to develop Nwogbo over the next year as he’s expected to sit 2013-14 due to NCAA transfer rules. By all accounts Illinois big man Ibby Djimde is still expected to transfer to Longwood as well.
Welcome to #LancersNation Lotanna!
