When the spring of 2012 began, shooting guard Wesley Iwundu (Houston, Texas/Westfield) wasn’t sure what to expect. A future computer science major, Iwundu was hoping to find his fit on the basketball court but where and at what level he wasn’t so sure. Could he possibly play in the Big 12?
“I was striving for it; I wanted it,” Iwundu said.
On Monday, he finally got what he wished for. The 6-foot-5 Iwundu committed to Kansas State, a program he visited earlier in the month. He also checked in with SMU last weekend and had significant interest from several other programs all over the country.
“I like Kansas State’s style and they’ll use me with the movement and ball screens,” Iwundu said.
Iwundu was part of the successful Houston Defenders program during the AAU season. Playing alongside top five senior recruits Aaron and Andrew Harrison, Iwundu played a vital role for the team and did it well.
However, there’s another level to his game that can be achieved. This is a young man of high intellect, sound basketball principles, and we’re comfortable in thinking he’s a late bloomer. In short, K-State wanted him, had a plan for him and certainly plans on using him as a freshman.
