Chukwuemeka Iroegbu is coming to WSU this next year as a "preferred" walk-on. He is 6-4 and shot 65 percent from the field in during the 2010-11 season. He is from Franklin HS near Sacramento. In the 2010-11 season he averaged 17.5 points and 7.5 rebounds per game. He also averaged 1.7 steals, 1.3 assists and 1.3 blocks per outing.
He also played on (arguably) the best club basketball team in the nation, the Oakland (Drew Gooden) Soldiers. I guess this AAU team was so fun to watch NBA players would come out to watch them. At least 4 of the guys on this team were top 30 recruits. Josiah Turner (AU) #15, Nick Johnson (AU) #27, Jabari Brown (UO) #17 and Kyle Wiltjer (UK) #22. It was probably hard to get PT with those 4 guys on the team. We will get to see three of these guys up close in the Pac12 next year. Two of those guys might be a little bit of the reason why MoMo Jones transferred.
Here are some highlights of Chuks (this apparently the name he goes by).
He is #24. His highlights come at the 1:55 mark.
Highlights start at the 2:08 mark.
Now we have two walk-ons to be excited about...Will Dilorio and Chuks Iroegba.
