Top 20 players in Class 5A Idaho high school girls basketball (Scorebook Live, 12/29/2020)
Ojukwu is without a doubt the state’s most sought after recruit. Mountain View coach Connie Skogrand said her star player simply has “too many” offers. And it’s easy to see why programs like UCLA, Michigan, Syracuse and Gonzaga want her. At 6-foot-1, Ojukwu has the perfection combination of size and speed. It led to her averaging 14.8 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.8 blocks and 1.2 steals per game. Those earned her both All-State and All-SIC first-team honors.
“Naya is a gifted player with natural athleticism, awareness, and technique in basketball,” Skogrand said. “She is a powerful rebounder and great shot blocker. Difficult to stop inside the key.”
