Worcester Wolves have confirmed their ninth signing ahead of the new BBL season, securing the services of Kingsley Nwagboso.
At 6’11”, the British centre brings size, strength and presence around the basket, bringing further depth to the team’s front court and rotation.
Nwagboso started his college career with Connor State in Division I of the NJCAA before finishing his senior year with Francis Marion of NCAA Division II where he totalled 84 points, 95 rebounds.
At 17, Nwagboso represented England at U18 level and then Great Britain at U20 level. After graduating college, he played in mainland Europe with Speyer of Germany followed by Serreslous of France where he came up against his now teammate, Josh McSwiggan.
Following his signing, Head Coach Matt Newby is excited to work with Nwagboso and see what he can do on court in the BBL.
“I believe Kingsley will be a great asset to our interior rotation,” said Newby. “His attitude and aptitude are excellent, and I feel that he has a great deal of potential that our environment will help him harness.
“I am looking forward to seeing him develop and contribute this season. He will be a valuable asset in terms of protecting the basket and rebounding and I feel his interior game will evolve matching up with Jordan Williams and Mike Parks on a daily basis.”
Nwagboso is excited to be returning to the UK and playing for the Worcester Wolves in the BBL.
He added, “I am super excited to join the Worcester Wolves and the Wolfpack family. I am thrilled to work with Coach Newby and his staff, and I look forward to building something special with my teammates.”
