Michael Nwoko, rated the No. 108 prospect (247Sports Composite) in the class, and guard Vasean Allette are scheduled to arrive to campus Friday for their visits. (Allette does not have a 247Sports Composite rating, but is ranked No. 100 in the class by 247Sports.) Notably, both are from Canada – Nwoko from Milton, Ontario, and Allette from Toronto. They reflect a new emphasis on recruiting Canada, as new assistant coach Brian Eskildsen was hired in part because of his connections in recruiting circles in that nation.

Nwoko, listed at 6-foot-9 and 240 pounds, also is considering Providence, Miami and UCLA. Allette’s list also includes Arizona State, Mississippi State and Texas. Allette, 6-3 and 180, and Nwoko both played for the Canadian U-18 national team that played in the FIBA U-18 Americas championship this summer.

Tech has one player committed thus far for the 2023 class, guard Blue Cain from Knoxville, Tenn. Cain, who committed in June, is a four-star prospect ranked No. 99 in the class.
