FDU Commit Chidube Ekwommadu is one of Canada’s biggest Stockrisers

Don’t think there’s been a player who’s made a bigger leap in the past year than 6’6 SG Chidube Ekwommadu, who has committed to play D1 for Fairleigh Dickinson University in the Northeast Conference.

The upside was always there with him. 6’6 frame with a 6’11 wingspan and good athletic ability. Going into Fort Erie International Academy for his final High School season, he put in serious work and became a lethal 3-level scorer. Ability to take games over and go on unconscious scoring runs like he’s done many times in his Senior year.

Looking forward to seeing the impact he makes in his Freshman season. From what he told me, he’s setting his sights high.
