No longer have to wonder about the 13 scholarship limit. Zanna signed a Statement of Financial Aid instead of a National Letter of Intent.
Nice!!! We as a fan base needed this signing period… It went better than expected. CKS hit the weak points the team had last year. Should be fun the next few years with the new arena opening in 2018-19 season.
After losing Young, Izundu, House & Thomas with in a year period, it seems our program is finally trending upward, and has recover from those transfers.
Measuring 6-foot-7 and 240 pounds, Zanna is one of the biggest members of the Cougars’ signing class. After receiving his bachelor’s degree in economics from LIU-Brooklyn, Zann will be immediately eligible for the 2017-18 season and have one year of eligibility. He chose Houston over Clemson, Penn State and UMass.
He will be the second Nigerian on the Cougars’ 2017-18 roster, joining junior center Valentine Sangoyomi, who sat out a year ago as a redshirt.
“Nura is a tough hombre and fills a need for us. We only have him for one year, but he is really going to help us,” Sampson said. “When we sat down and talked with him and his family, all he talked about was going to the NCAA Tournament. Nura is a no-nonsense guy, a tough player and a high-character kid.”
