By: @JLHemingwayPSB & @BrandonClayPSB Player Evaluations

Date: December 2, 2016
Evaluator: Jonathan Hemingway
Location: Marshall County Hoop Fest (Benton, Ky.)

Nwuba is a strong interior presence. He has legitimate size to patrol the lane and be an enforcer. He is not a primary scoring option, but will score put backs and alley oops. His 3 point, 6 rebound, 4 foul performance versus Aspire kind of sums up his game right now.

Evaluator: Brandon Clay
Location: Nike Elite 100 Camp (St. Louis, Mo.)

Nwuba is an imposing force on the interior. He has a defensive end type of build strength wise. While his offensive game is still rounding out, Nwuba has been impressive around the glass.

Nwuba is a reserve post player who is strong and protects the rim. He defends and rebounds. He will continue to get better.

Nwuba is a post player who runs the floor and plays with poise on the low block. He showed a nice ball fake and up and under with his back to the basket.

Nwuba is a willing screener from the post position. He showcased good footwork on the post catch. Nwuba battled with Chris Lewis on the interior.

Location: Marshall County Hoop Fest (Benton, Ky.)

Nwuba showed great promise here today as an interior player. He has great lift and an ideal build for a post player. He played 3 minutes in a match up versus Carlisle School scoring his only bucket that he attempted.

Location: John Lucas Invitational (Louisville, Ky.)

Nwuba is a problem on the inside. With a frame like Daniel Giddens (GA-15), he is an imposing prospect on the interior. While Nwuba is still developing skill wise, he is an explosive athlete.
