UTEP Basketball: 2018 big man Efe Odigie visits UTEP this weekend

NCAA Basketball: Fresno State at Marquette Mary Langenfeld-USA TODAY Sports

Rodney Terry will bring in a very familiar face to El Paso during the first weekend of a live recruiting period as 2018 big man and former Fresno State signee Efe Odigie will be officially visiting UTEP this weekend.

Odigie, a 6’9 forward/center, along with fellow UTEP target and four-star guard Isaac Likekele were released from letters of intent they signed with Rodney Terry while at Fresno, Odigie was released Monday and quickly set up a visit to El Paso this weekend.

Both Odigie and Likekele signed with Rodney Terry and Fresno State in November. With the late signing period starting earlier this week, Odigie and Likekele are among UTEP’s main and most important targets at the moment as Rodney Terry and staff start to piece together his first ever recruiting class at UTEP.

Odigie is from Houston, Texas, playing his prep ball at Houston’s Pro Vision Academy. He had offers from Tulsa, Arkansas State, and Texas State before signing with Fresno State.
