RICHMOND, Va. – VCU Coach Will Wade surprised everybody, including his sports information director, Thursday afternoon when he revealed freshman center Jonathan Nwankwo had been ruled eligible immediately by the NCAA for four years of competition.
Wade quickly pivoted.
“With that said, we’re going to redshirt him,” he declared.
Nwankwo, a 6-foot-9, 245-pound center from Nigeria by way of the Bronx, N.Y., originally signed with Minnesota and fielded offers from Tennessee, Seton Hall, Boston College and others. It was originally unclear when and for how many years Nwankwo would be eligible, due to the differences in the structure of school systems in Nigeria and the United States, as well as a year Nwankwo was out of school with his ailing mother. He moved to the United States four years ago.
Wade assured reporters that Nwankwo’s eligibility was never a question of academics, and says the freshman is a computer science major carrying a 3.5 grade point average.
The NCAA’s ruling settles a protracted compliance process that began months ago. Although Wade’s plan will be to sit and develop Nwankwo for a year, he’ll be allowed to practice with the team during that period.

Well, the doors are officially open at the VCU Basketball Development Center. The teams have been practicing inside the facility for a week or two, but we officially cut the ribbon Monday. Other than a few bells and whistles, everything is up and running, and man, it is truly impressive. It can’t help but elevate both VCU’s men’s and women’s basketball programs.
