Prospect Profiles Presented by Panini: Onyeka Okongwu

USC Big Man is a Force Around the Rim on Both Ends

But the Association can’t completely shake its ongoing affair with the big man. Guys like Nikola Jokic, Rudy Gobert, and Joel Embiid have just reinvented the position.

Onyeka Okongwu, the dynamic 19-year-old center from USC, is unique in his own right and will certainly be one of the first bigs to come off the board on November 18.
