Senior Patrick Onwenu played power forward and center for the varsity basketball team. - Jasmine Walker

Senior Patrick Onwenu has committed to Texas Southern University to play college basketball.

He had other offers from Creighton and Ball State on the table, but, Onwenu said, "I chose Texas Southern for so many reasons, athletic and education wise. Texas Southern is a historical black college, and the coach is from Michigan."

Also, the university has a program in Sports Management that Onwenu says interests him.

Onwenu comes from a tightly knit family, so moving to Texas for school was a huge decision, he said. "The distance from my family was a big deal. It was the main reason why my decision was so delayed, but my sister says I can’t grow as a person if I don’t expand my horizons, and I agree with that totally."
