Christian Nitu, a 6'11 unicorn from Fort Erie International Academy, commits to Indiana State

Fort Erie International Academy, a private school in Ontario, Canada, has produced one of the most intriguing prospects in the 2024 class: Christian Nitu, a 6'11 forward with a versatile skill set and a high ceiling.

Nitu announced his commitment to Indiana State on Saturday November 11th, following in the footsteps of Boston Celtic legend Larry Bird, who played for the Sycamores from 1976 to 1979.

Nitu is a rare talent who can handle the ball, shoot from the perimeter, and protect the rim. He has been compared to NBA stars like Chet Holmgren for his combination of size, athleticism, and skill.

However, Nitu has also been plagued by injuries throughout his high school career. He missed most of his 2023 season due to a injury, and he only played in a few games in the spring due to his injury.

Despite his limited exposure recently, Nitu has been recognized by almost every accredited basketball scout in North America. He played with UPLAY Canada in the EYBL circuit, where he faced some of the best competition in the continent. He also participated in several elite camps and showcases, where he impressed with his potential.

"I firmly believe Christian Nitu when healthy has possibly the best prospect in the 2024 class from Canada. He has all the tools to be a dominant player at the next level and beyond. He just needs to stay healthy and keep working hard," said The Maple Minute founder and editor-in-chief, Josh Millican.

Nitu is excited to join Indiana State and hopes to make an immediate impact. He also has big dreams for his future.

Expect Nitu to be one of the biggest steals in the 2024 class, bar none.
