The University of Arizona could be home to not one or two, but all three Nnaji siblings.
The UA women’s basketball program offered Josie Nnaji last week, the youngest sister of former Wildcats forward and Pac-12 Freshman of the Year Zeke Nnaji, who now plays for the Denver Nuggets after going 22nd overall in the 2020 NBA Draft.
Arizona is also one of 13 finalists for Zeke’s other sister, Maya, a five-star forward in the 2022 recruiting class.
I thank the Most High for receiving a scholarship offer from the University of Arizona‼️Thanks @AdiaBarnes and staff for this opportunity‼️ #BearDownGoCats pic.twitter.com/r0g2JQQPbt— Josie Nnaji (@josie_nnaji11) January 22, 2021
Josie is a 2025 prospect—meaning she is only in eighth grade—but already holds offers from Colorado and Vanderbilt. I could not find much info on her other than that she is a 5-foot-9 shooting guard who attends Hopkins Junior High School in Minnesota, the same school that Maya and Zeke attended.
Hopkins High is a powerhouse in both girls and boys basketball, also recently producing players like freshman sensation Paige Bueckers (UConn) and Kerwin Walton (North Carolina) in addition to the Nnaji siblings.
The Hopkins boys team has won five state championships since 2009. The girls team has won five since 2011.
