News coming in on the big man Joseph Uchebo from Oak Ridge Military Acadmey and his intentions to enter N.C State University one year earlier than was planned….

from JP Giglio at the Observer Recruiting Blogspot.com at the Charlotte Observer:

If everything goes according to plan, basketball recruit Joseph Uchebo will get to N.C. State one year sooner than expected.

Uchebo, a 6-9 power forward from Nigeria, is going to reclassify as a senior and graduate in 2011, his high school coach said Friday before Uchebo played in the Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions in Chapel Hill.

Uchebo, who turns 18 in June, will need to take a summer school class in math to meet the NCAA Clearinghouse core requirements, Oak Military Academy coach Stan Kowalewski said. But Uchebo’s committed to graduate after three years of high school in this country and enroll before the 2011-12 season.

“He’s a good student and he works hard,” Kowalewski said. “He should be able to handle the extra work.”
