John Egbunu is BLOWING up the NBA elite 100 camp today!
Could we have our 1st top 10 high school recruit when its all said and done?
He might wind up being the top center in the nation,not many out there in the 2013 class.

Rick Lewis @Coach_Rick57 Like the way 7'0 John Egbunu & 6'9 Thomas Hamilton battle/compete in the post #top100camp
Top 100 Camp @Top100Camp John Egbunu playing really well in game 1...great at getting position on the offensive end and finishing tight to the basket.
Future150 @Future150 2013 C John Egbunu is 7-feet and a rebounding machine. Plays with power and can run the floor extremely well. #NBATop100 #Future150
Eric Bossi @ebosshoops John Egbunu has been a bright spot. I'm betting he's closer to 6-8 than his listed 7-0 but he's an animal on the glass
Jonathan Watford @HOOPSScout John Egbunu 7'0 C 2013 GA is really asserting himself on the offensive glass here in Game 1 at Top 100 Camp.
Top 100 Camp @Top100Camp Egbunu with an impressive putback over Okonoboh...oh and Jabari Parker with the step back 3 over the defense
Top 100 Camp @Top100Camp Colbert with the block...John Egbunu with the alleyoop dunk for the Thunder on the other end...
Ryan Mattocks @coachmattocks Stan Heath and USF got an absolute STEAL in '13 Nigerian 7-footer John Egbunu. Tech. sound, rolls hard on PNR, fluid finishes #NBAPATop100
Clint Jackson @clintjackson1 Source says its been a laid back day but that John Egbunu, Goodluck Okonoboh, and Michael Young were all impressive.
It's unreal the kind of visitors Heath and USF basketball are getting in.

The USF 2013 Basketball Class is shaping up to be a stellar frontcourt haul for the Bulls.
I see a 2013 class of PG Josh Heath, SG Drew Davis, SF Demetrius Henry, PF Chris Perry, and C John Egbunu. I see Heath and Davis redshirting.
Rivals just redid their rankings and the Bulls will most likely land 3 Rivals top 150 big men.
John Egbunu was one of the highest risers to a 4 star at 75.
Demetrius Henry got moved up to a 4 star to 110.
Chris Perry entered the top 150 at 144.
All 3 are 6'9 and are very physical presenses down low.
It couldn't come at a better time as we have only true frontcourt big man returning in Jordan Omegbehin. The forwards and center spot will be completely depleted. We lost 6'10 Waverly Austin, and we lose our entire starting frontline in F Victor Rudd (early entree) ,PF Toralyn Fitzpatrick, and C Kore White.
Their is speculation on the Cincy board that losing Waverly Austin has put USF in the driver's seat for Bartow big man Chris Perry. He would slip right into the starters spot at Power Forward.
Henry has moved to Brandon Faith Baptist and has been to USF campus several time including to the recent elite USF camp with 2014 Brandon Faith Baptist SF Malik Price Martin and John Egbunu. He has added a jump shot and handle to his game and is now looking at playing the wing/small forward spot at college. He's a physical bruiser who defends, rebounds, dunks everything and blocks shots. Also shooting to be a one and done.
If we land all 3 we are looking at a starting lineup in 2013 of
PG Anthony Collins
SG Musa Aleem
SF Demetrius Henry
PF Chris Perry
C. John Egbenu
Backing them up would most likely
PG. Martino Brock
SG. Javontae Hawkins
SF Zack Leday
PF. Dan Robinson (if they take the project midyear from IMG,rated 2048 in his class)
C. Jordan Omegbehin
There's an outside shot that Forward Tweeners Chris Davenport or Drekralo Clayton could be part of this class, but USF seems to have backed off them and Antravious Simmons as of late.
Very excited about this 2013 class.
USF is enterting the home stretch with Cincy for Chris Perry.
Hearing #UC commits Kevin Johnson and Troy Caupain will join top target Chris Perry to begin their official visits on Thursday. -- Chad Brendel (@chbrendel)
After returning home from his official visit at Cincinnati yesterday, Chris Perry will host in home visits with both USF and UC today...
