By Joel Francisco, ESPN Recruiting
Godwin Okonji, a 6-8 senior out of Henderson, Nev./Findlay Prep, committed to Loyola Marymount after receiving offers from New Mexico, TCU, Texas Tech, and Hawaii. He also received interest from Marquette and Missouri. Okonji is a blue-collar power forward who has developed his skills and savvy for this game in the past year. He is a terrific rebounder with good hands, and he can finish with either hand in the paint area. In addition, while posting up, he showed the ability to locate the open man if double-teamed. When asked why he chose LMU he stated, "I felt comfortable with the coaching staff and the players were very nice." In addition, "It's an up-and-coming program in the WCC."
