NU head coach Bill Carmody announced the addition of 7-foot-2 center Chier Ajou. However, Ajou's status for the upcoming season has yet to be determined by the NCAA.
"The addition of Chier completes a terrific freshman class that we're very excited about," Carmody said in a statement. "He is an outstanding young man who is athletic, has great upside and is a good fit for our program. He'll provide our team with a dimension we haven't seen in a while."
Ajou, a native of South Sudan, is the tallest Wildcat in the program's history. He helped Culver Academy to its first state final appearance in school history in 2011.
