Prince Is Coming to Howard University
Before you get too excited, be advised that this is not Prince, "The Entertainer." But for Howard University head coach men's basketball coach Kevin Nickelberry and Bison basketball fans, it could prove to be just as entertaining. Prince Okoroh, one of the top prospects in the Washington, DC metropolitan area, has signed a national letter of intent to attend the Hilltop in the fall.
Okoroh becomes the fifth signee for the Bison in what has become a stellar recruiting season and arguably one of the best in school history. A 6-5 forward from Eleanor Roosevelt, Okoroh led his team to the 2010-11 Prince George's 4A South Region title.
During his career, Okoroh led the Raiders to four, 4A South Regional titles. For his efforts this season, he was named to the Washington Post PG County 4A first team, the PG County Gazette first team and the Washington Post honorable mention All Met team.
"We are very excited about signing Prince," said Coach Nickelberry. "He possesses a unique combination of skills. He is a proven scorer, rebounder and defender. But most important of all, he is a winner."
An outstanding student, Okoroh was recruited by Columbia, Brown, Loyola of Baltimore, the Citadel and UMBC. He will be joining fellow Bison signees Brandon Ford and Brandon Bailey in the Capital Classic All-Star game this weekend.
