OG Anunoby Biography

Childhood, School, and College Life

OG A son of Nigerian immigrants, Anunoby was born in London’s Harlesden neighborhood on July 17, 1997. Ogugua Sr. was a university professor in England, where he was raised. When he was only a year old, his mother passed away from cancer.

Chigbo, his older brother, played in the NFL for the Cleveland Browns, Tennessee Titans, and Minnesota Vikings before he decided to pursue a career in medicine. In light of his tall frame, Anunoby gave up football sometime around the age of eight in order to devote more time to basketball.

He was one of the top candidates for Mr. Basketball in Missouri after a senior season in which he averaged 19.1 points and 8.6 rebounds per game. After considering Georgia, Iowa, George Mason, and Ole Miss, Anunoby settled on IU in October of 2014.
