UK has extended a scholarship offer to four-star center Clifford Omoruyi, according to Rivals.com basketball recruiting analyst Corey Evans.
Omoruyi — a 6-foot-11, 240-pound prospect from Nigeria — was a junior this past season at Roselle Catholic (N.J.), making him a high school teammate of UK commitment Kahlil Whitney, one of the top recruits in the 2019 class. John Calipari was at the school Friday for a basketball camp.
Rivals.com ranks Omoruyi as the No. 56 overall prospect in the 2020 class. Syracuse, Florida, Virginia and UConn are among the schools that have already extended offers to Omoruyi, who will be among the top frontcourt players to watch this summer.
Omoruyi played last summer on the Nike circuit for New York Lightning, which is coached by Dana Dingle, a former John Calipari player from his days as UMass coach.
