Ndudi Ebi, a 6-10, 190 pound power forward from Westbury Christian H.S. in Houston, Tex., said he is fairly wide open in his recruiting process.
Speaking to the Insiders Report/Rivalshoops.com from this past weekend's Kingwood Classic in Kingwood, Tex., Ebi said that he has a strong interest in Duke, North Carolina, Texas, Arizona, Houston and Louisville.
"Those schools are schools that would be on anybody's list," Ebi said.
Ebi will take his first official visit this weekend to Arizona (May 3-5). Houston Hoops founder Hal Pastner's son Josh is an assistant at the PAC 10 schools, and he was seen at many of Ebi's games this past weekend in Kingwood.
A rail thin but mobile and athletic big man, Ebi helped the Houston Hoops win the title of the Kingwood Classic on Sunday afternoon. He scored 10 points and blocked or altered tons of shots in the Hoops' 83-69 title game victory over Ft. Sooy No Limit.
Ebi averaged 23 points, 10 rebounds and four blocks per game this past season at Westbury Christian, which has produced a number of Division I players in the past several years.
Ebi said he has a 2.6 GPA but won't take the SAT until June.
Ebi is one of the elite big men in the Class of 2003. He does so many things to affect the outcome of a game. If he can add some muscle to his frame in the next couple of years, then he could be an unstoppable force with his back to the basket.
For now, he's great at finishing the break and is very active on the offensive glass, with his bouncy athleticism being a great asset in the paint.
We will keep you posted on Ebi's recruitment in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.
