Omoruyi — a 6-foot-11 prospect at Roselle Catholic (N.J.) — has narrowed his choices to Arizona State, Auburn, Kentucky, Rutgers and UConn, and he took his official visit to Tempe last week. Other national recruiting analysts — such as Rivals.com’s Eric Bossi and Corey Evans, and 247Sports inside Brian Snow — had previously logged predictions in favor of Arizona State.
Auburn has also hosted Omoruyi for an official visit, and he plans to take additional visits to UK, Rutgers and UConn before making a college decision, which is not expected until after the season. Omoruyi is the No. 41 overall player in the 2020 class and one of only two uncommitted players from that group — along with five-star forward Greg Brown — to receive a UK scholarship offer.
