Detroit Titans sign Patrick Onwenu to basketball letter of intent

Detroit Mercy believes it has found a player who will help compensate for the departures of Doug Anderson and Nick Minnerath.
The Titans have signed 6-foot-8 Patrick Onwenu of Highland Park Community College. Onwenu went to Southfield High.
“He is a very athletic player who can score, rebound, and block shots and comes from a winning program,” Titans coach Ray McCallum said. “He is also local student of the game that is capable of stepping out to the perimeter to make 3s, which is a big asset in this league.”
Onwenu earned NJCAA Division I All-America Honorable Mention for the 2012-13 season after averaging 17.5 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 4.2 blocked shots per game to help the Cougars to the regular season Arrowhead Conference title with a 23-7 overall record and to the Region IV semifinals. He was also named the All-Arrowhead Conference and Region IV Player of the Year along with finishing fourth in the nation in blocked shots. 
“We are losing two of the most athletic players in the Horizon League in Doug Anderson and Nick Minnerath and he definitely brings both an offensive and defensive presence to the floor,” McCallum said.
