The 6 foot 7 inch forward plays for Sulphur Springs High School in Sulphur Springs, Texas, and is the highest rated high school power forward or center to commit to OU since Andrew Fitzgerald and Keith “Tiny” Gallon committed in 2009. He’s ranked No. 116 in the nation and No. 27 for his position on Rivals.
Iwuakor chose OU over 28 other offers from a list of schools that includes Baylor, TCU and Florida.

OU is ranked No. 13 in Rivals’ team recruiting rankings and has six scholarships opening up after this upcoming season.
