Player Bio

Josh Okogie was born in Lagos, Nigeria in 1998. The fourth of five children born to Pius and Antonia Okogie, Josh moved with his family to the United States when he was almost three years old. He tried out basketball just for fun at the age of eight and immediately fell in love with the sport. Okogie spent three years starting at Shiloh High School in Snellville, Georgia, leading the Generals to a 28-4 mark and the program's first-ever state semifinal appearance as a junior. As a senior, he was even more prolific, carrying Shiloh to a 24-6 record and the Region 8-AAAAAA championship. He was named the Gwinnett Daily Post's Player of the Year for both of those seasons, all while maintaining an honor-roll-level 3.8 GPA. Okogie carried that academic mindset with him to the Georgia Institute of Technology, where he majored in business administration. He is also a champion of community service, having received a 2018 ACC Top 6 for Service award for his dedication to community service and outreach programs.
