Two days ago, Potter’s House (Jacksonville, Fla.) center Udoka Azubuike told USA Today High School Sports that he wanted to get his college decision out of the way “really soon” because of the stress it was causing him.

On Thursday, Azubuike eliminated that stress by picking Kansas over North Carolina and Florida State.

Earlier this month, Azubuike, who is ranked No. 22 overall in the ESPN 100, was named to the Jordan Brand Classic and McDonald’s All American Game. He’s averaging 19 points and 10 rebounds a game this season.

This past summer, Azubuike helped the Georgia Stars claim the Nike Peach Jam title, averaging 14 points and eight rebounds a game.

His summer dominance led to his peers giving him the Toughest Defensive Assignment trophy in the USA Today High School Sports AAU Awards and Superlatives.

Azubuike joins Surrey Garden Christian (Gilbert, Ariz.) forward Mitch Lightfoot to form the Jayhawks’ 2016 class thus far.

Here’s how Udoka Azubuike gets it done.
