Marshall Basketball: Herd Lands Commitment from JUCO Center Henry Uwadiae

According to multiple outlets, Marshall’s basketball program has received a verbal commitment from Kirkwood Community College (Iowa) center Henry Uwadiae.

A native of Nigeria, Uwadiae came to America at age 16 for his first taste of organized basketball. He spent a year at Findlay Prep in Las Vegas with additional stops at United Faith Christian Academy and Evelyn Mack Academy in Charlotte North Carolina.

Uwadiae gave a verbal commitment to Wichita State in July of 2011 but, he was ruled academically ineligible and never enrolled at the Missouri Valley Conference school.

Standing 6-foot-10, 210 pounds, Uwadiae attended Kirkwood Community College last year but, academics prevented him from suiting up for the basketball team. All signs point towards Uwadiae playing for Kirkwood this season and once enrolled at Marshall, he will have three years of eligibility remaining.

Uwadiae is regarded as a project on the hardwood. He grew up playing volleyball and did not concentrate on basketball until age 14.
