    FELIX OKPARA
    6-FOOT-11, 210 POUNDS – NO. 37 OVERALL, NO. 5 C – CHATTANOOGA, TENNESSEE
    Just last week, the Buckeyes extended a scholarship offer to Okpara, a long, shot-blocking center whose offensive game is ever-expanding and has him working to extend his shooting range. Those who have seen the high-end four-star big man recently have raved about his rim protection. He can run the floor better than most his size. Whether the native Nigerian can round out his offensive game will determine if he becomes a five-star or not.

    Ohio State, with Diebler leading the recruitment, has made progress with Okpara. The staff will bring him in for an official visit on June 15-17. He also plans to take officials to Texas, Mississippi and Tennessee this summer, with Kentucky hanging around because assistant coach Orlando Antigua recruited him at Illinois before going to Kentucky. It’s too early to know how the Buckeyes stand with Okpara.

    He’s from Nigeria. Left for the U.S. alone three years ago. Admits he wasn't good at basketball. Wild journey. As you’d expect, he talked about how tough it was to do that by himself. But the weirdest thing? Americans putting pickles on their burgers. I’m right there with him…
