It won’t be long before the whole world knows who Aidan Harris Igiehon is. The young Clondalkin native is doing his very best to let everyone know, as soon as possible.
Igiehon is considered one of the top 20 prospects ahead of the 2020 NBA Draft for which he will be eligible for after he completes a season at the highly rated Louisville Cardinals college team in the NCAA next season.
Louisville recruited Igiehon and the prospect revealed that he had chosen the Cardinals in October, making them one of the top five ranked recruiting classes in college basketball.

Before Igiehon arrives in Kentucky however he is making sure everyone is aware that he is worth the hype in his last year of high school basketball.
“The Irish Hulk” is playing his first senior year with Lawrence Woodmere Academy in Long Island, New York and is already dominating the ranks. Standing at 6’9 and 220 pounds Igiehon is considered one of, if not, the best rebounder in high school basketball.

In his first game of the season, Igiehon put up 19 points and grabbed a hugely impressive 21 rebounds. Two days later Igiehon went off for 23 points and 17 rebounds. On December 1st he didn’t play the fourth quarter and still managed 20 points and 16 rebounds.
You get the picture.
Aidan Igiehon filled up the stat sheet in his first game on his senior season. 19 points and added 21 (!) rebounds. The Louisville signee is bound for a great senior year.

Last night, however, Igiehon decided he was going to up the ante. In another victory for LWA (led by Igiehon they remain undefeated) the prospect, again not even playing the fourth quarter, exploded putting up a ridiculous 42 points and 23 rebounds, grabbing 29 and 15 in the first half alone.
Louisville signee Aidan Igiehon JUST WENT OFF. Ended with 42 points and added 23 boards.
Didn’t play the 4th quarter, his halftime stat line was 29 and 15. He’s off to an amazing start to his senior year. LWA remains undefeated.

Igiehon may be a couple of years away from the NBA, but if he continues his ridiculous start to the senior year at LWA and can translate his skills to the NCAA college game next season, then “The Irish Hulk” may find himself very very high on the watchlist of prospective NBA teams.
