One to Watch: High School Basketball Prep Star Goodluck Okonoboh

February 12, 2013

Behind every great name is a great story, and Wilbraham and Monson Academy's 6'9" starting center Goodluck Okonoboh has one to tell. In our video profile above, hear how the Massachusetts junior sensation got his name and how he plans to use his shot-blocking and defensive abilities to help the WMA Titans. (Also, watch our video profile of the 2012-2013 WMA squad.)

As a sophomore, Okonoboh played behind 2012's number one high school recruit, Nerlens Noel at The Tilton School in Tilton, New Hampshire. Before the start of the 2012-2103, Okonoboh transferred to WMA where he has become a top-three recruit in the state of Massachusetts and has landed a spot on ESPN's list of top 100 2014 prospects.
