Ogugua "OG" Anunoby was born in London in 1997. Anunoby is named after his father, Ogugua, who moved his six children to Jefferson City, Missouri after receiving a professorship at the nearby Lincoln University. Anunoby got serious about basketball when he was eight year old, after his father purchased a 12 foot basketball hoop for the family's backyard. He soon graduated to the AAU and varsity basketball levels. Athletics has always been in his blood; Anunoby's mother competed in track and field at the national level in Nigeria, and his brother, Chigbo, was a defensive lineman in the NFL, most recently a member of the Cleveland Brown organization. Anunoby turned into a superstar at Jefferson City High School, where he averaged 21.3 points, 9.9 rebounds and 3.4 blocks per game as a junior, helping the Jayhawks to a 15-12 record. He averaged 19.1 points and 8.6 rebounds per game as a senior, and was named a finalist for Missouri Mr. Basketball.
