WVU Makes Final Four For Oscar Twhiebwe

WVU Makes Final Four For Oscar Tshiebwe


West Virginia is one of four schools on big man Oscar Tshiebwe‘s list of potential college destinations.

Tshiebwe (6-9, 240, Kennedy Catholic HS\Hermitage, Pa.) has blossomed into one of the top inside forces in the country. He has added good offensive skills to a strong defensive game, and has faced down some of the top players in the nation during summer competition.

He has been thoughtful during the recruiting process, gradually eliminating some from consideration as he narrows his focus and attention to what is now a final quartet.  Tshiebwe, a native of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, is very familiar with WVU, having made multiple visits to campus. He also lives with the same family that previously hosted current West Virginia forward Sagaba Konate.

West Virginia has been involved with Tshiebwe for at least three years, and offered him a scholarship in the summer of 2016. In this final cutdown, Tshiebwe eliminated Kansas, Georgetown, Mississippi and Virginia from consideration.

Kentucky is the only school in his final four grouping that has not yet offered a scholarship, but that could come on a September visit. Tshiebwe is set for trips to Illinois and Baylor during the same period, and could also make the short trip for another West Virginia drop-in before making his decision. No timetable has been set for that final call.

    Oscar Tshiebwe will take his official visit to West Virginia Oct. 5-6 weekend. The Mountaineer football team hosts Kansas that weekend.

    WVU will be his fourth and final visit. He has also set visits to Baylor, Illinois and Kentucky.

    Interesting that the order of schools at the bottom of this pic is
    Kentucky,
    WVU
    Illinois
    Baylor

    instead of alphabetical Baylor, Illinois, Kentucky, and West Virginia as it is in every other article.

    Jeff Cobb……. any input here on this order?

    I think you’re reading too much into it.

    I believe WVU is the favorite, but if he has a great Kentucky visit that might complicate things a bit. The best thing is that West Virginia gets his last visit, so Huggs gets to make the final impression before Oscar decides.

    Being last on the visit list can be a good thing. Knowing that Cal already has Whitney and Allen as SF’s committed and looking to land either Wiseman or Cary at C (or both) and have Hurt, Lewis and Brooks as their High Choices along with PF McDaniels and C Cockburn in the wings, Oscar falls down to a distant backup candidate if none of the other bigs commit to UK.

    On the other hand, Cal may just put the pressure on and force OT’s hand at the visit. He’s done this before. Hope OT realizes that he will always be second fiddle in a Cal lineup. Cal recruits NBA ready kids. Huggs develops kids to get to their highest potential. OT will be a star at WVU. One of many at UK. Hope he realizes this.

    On the pic. Just saw that LM Edits does a lot of recruiting pics for many different players. Her twitter site refers to a lot of info from the 247 recruiting page. Recently she has a number of pics about UK recruits. Any connection there?
