David Nzekwesi, the 6-foot-9 power forward from Byron Nelson (TX) High School, told D1Vision on Thursday that Fresno State and Denver were two of the schools currently recruiting him the hardest.

“Probably Fresno State and Denver,” said Nzekwesi on schools that are recruiting him the hardest. “There are a few others, but I’m waiting until the end of the season to sign. I hope to get bigger schools, high-major schools.”

Nzekwesi, who currently has 20 offers, spoke about both Fresno State and Denver:

Fresno State: “Just the coaching staff. They have a good coaching staff. They recruit me hard, so I like that. They win games and they’re in a pretty good conference.”

Denver: “Same thing. I have a very close relationship with the assistant coach. Same thing really.”

With a spring decision upcoming, Nzekwesi is yet to take any of his official visits and has no upcoming visits planned. “I haven’t planned any visits,” said Nzekwesi. “I plan on taking all five official visits, but it depends on how everything goes.”

Despite his desire to commit late, Nzekwesi has a good idea of what he’s looking for in a school, as he said, “The main thing I’m looking for is a team that wins, has a good coaching staff, somewhere I can go to develop even more, good academics, and somewhere that I will get to play.”

In addition to Fresno State and Denver, Nzekwesi also holds offers from schools such as Boise State, Lehigh, New Hampshire, Lamar, Oral Roberts, Rice, Air Force, North Texas, Texas State, Stephen F. Austin, Sam Houston State, UC Davis, and Hofstra, among others.

Boise State already has a four-man recruiting class of Riley Abercrombie, Jaycson BeReal, Michael Frazier, and Patrick Dembley.

This season at Byron Nelson High School, Nzekwesi is averaging close to 19 points and 11 rebounds per game, leading his team to an early 11-4 record. He spoke about his expectations and goals for this season.

“As a team, we want to win district and make it deep in the playoffs. Personally, I just want to be the district MVP,” he said. “I mainly [want to improve] my ball handling and my strength, getting in the weight room even more and getting more muscle mass.”
