Indiana Connections — Nnaji plays for the D1 Minnesota AAU program that includes Matthew Hurt.  IU assistant coach Tom Ostrom is from Minnesota, has close ties in that state, led the recruitment of Hoosier Race Thompson, and is also leading the Nnaji recruitment.


“They would really like to use my talents,” Nnaji said of Indiana’s recruiting pitch. “They think that I could be a stretch four, like a three or a four. They’d like me to put the ball down on the floor more and play off the wing, too. But also don’t go away from the post — use both.”

– USA Today, August 2018



There aren’t a lot of good Nnaji interviews out there, but he does appear in this one midway through discussing his Minnesota AAU program.
