North Carolina offers 2019 KU target

Kansas University basketball recruiting

Class of 2019 power forward Zeke Nnaji might have another school added to his final list of five.

Nnaji, a four-star prospect ranked No. 37 by Rivals.com in the 2019 class, recently wrapped up his fifth and final official visit last weekend at Purdue after having already visited Arizona, UCLA, Baylor and Kansas.

It wasn't long after getting home from his Purdue visit that Nnaji had North Carolina coach Roy Williams and staff offering him a scholarship while visiting Nnaji in Minnesota.

Nnaji, who is close with Top 5 prospect and AAU teammate Matt Hurt, has long been a priority for the Kansas coaching staff but became even more important recently when Top 10 prospect Jeremiah Robinson-Earl, a power forward from IMG Academy, committed to Villanova.

Nnaji made his official visit to KU the weekend of Late Night and, by all accounts, loved his time in Lawrence.

There is no known timeline for the power forward's decision, but it's clear that things are heating up in his recruitment.

it almost feels like KU has to land Zeke and Hurt...KU is pretty set on its guards but they will lose Dok and Dedric after this season so they will be very short handed in the Front court if UNC snatches these 2 kids away, and its not like there is a long list of top 100 unsigned big men floating around..as much as I appreciated Landen Lucas, I would hate to have another front court with a player like him as the featured guy
