High Point Christian Academy ‘Big Man’ Chuck Ogbodo headed to UNCW for hoops

High Point Christian big man Chuck Ogbodo has committed to Buzz Peterson and the UNC-Wilmington Seahawks.

Ogbodo averaged 6 points 10 rebounds and 2 blocks per game last year for the 30-2 Cougars. He is coming off an outstanding summer campaign that netted him interest from a variety of schools.

“Chuck has a very bright future ahead of him. he has made huge leaps in his game and I expect him to have an outstanding senior season. He has done what he has needed to a far as getting his body ready for college and we will benefit from that this season. His recruitment was all over the map. He had offers from the SEC, Big East, and the A-10 conferences along with a ton of mid-major schools. There were a few ACC schools that got involved late, but Chuck was comfortable in his decision. He said from day one that his objective in finding a school was not conference affiliation, but rather finding the right place for him. He found that with UNCW.”-HPCA coach Brandon Clifford

Ogbodo becomes the 4th NCAA Division I commit this fall for High Point Christian and will team alongside Appalachian State commit Mike Kobani to form one of the bigger front lines in the country. High Point Christian opens up their season November 13th at national power Oak Hill Academy.
