Big Center Heading to Texas
Just got off the phone with Good Counsel Coach Mike Hibbs, who had the news that center Julius Omoniurhie has committed to play for Southern Methodist.
Omoniurhie, a 6-11 senior who moved to the U.S. from Nigeria, visited SMU two weeks ago. He visited Binghamton this past weekend and also had an offer from Texas Christian, Hibbs said.
"TCU just called and said they heard we had a big kid, so he called that way because they needed a big," Hibbs said. "SMU was the one that had been on him all along since the spring. They have a number of African kids on their team. They knew Godwin [Owinje], who brought Julius over here and Talib [Zanna of Bishop McNamara] and all those guys. Binghamton had been recruiting some of our other guys.
"SMU really wanted him and he really enjoyed his time down there. It seemed like they had a family and the coaches were very involved with the players. He said it felt like being here."
I'll have more from Julius this afternoon...
