Obiagu received an in-home visit from the NC State coaching staff back on September 18th. Scout ranks him as the #34 overall player in the 2017 class. When NC State first went to watch him in September of last year, he was a 5 star recruit, and the #1 center in the class.
Obiagu plays for Greenforest Mccalep Christian Academy in Decatur, Georgia. He is from Nigeria, and moved here as a 9th grader. Volleyball was his first love, not basketball. Both involve a ball where you can jump up in the air and spike it, and Obiagu has applied the same technique to blocking all of his opponents shots.
