The Abuja, Nigeria, native finished his collegiate career with 1,200 points, good for 25th on Arkansas’ all-time list of leading scorers.

He became one of the most versatile big men to ever wear an Arkansas uniform and stands alone with Razorback legend Oliver Miller as the only players to reach 1,000 points, 600 rebounds and 200 blocks.
