Vermont’s Nwora is Louisville Bound
Vermont Academy post-graduate Jordan Nwora made a verbal commitment to Louisville and head coach Rick Pitino on Wednesday, announcing his decision via his twitter account.
The 6-foot-7 forward is one of the best shooters throughout the entire country. He converted 39% of his attempts from behind the three-point line while starring with the New York Rens during EYBL play, but beyond that number, he also developed a reputation for being able to make tough shots with a hand in his face. His contributions were a pivotal part of the Rens' run to the Peach Jam quarterfinals.
Following the conclusion of the EYBL season and the July evaluation period, Nwora took part in Adidas Nations and earned high praise in the nationally televised event.
Now, he's joining a Vermont Academy team that is looking to defend their NEPSAC AA crown. He is the third VA product to commit to a division I school in the class of 2017 as he follows Christian David and Marcus Santos Silva who committed to Butler and VCU respectively.
Below are some of Nwora's highlights from the summer circuit.
