2024 No. 25 Dontae Russo Nance of Mouth of Wilson (VA) Oak Hill Academy

When we updated the On3 2024 150, Mouth of Wilson (VA) Oak Hill Academy guard Dontae Russo-Nance debuted at No. 25. The 6-foot-3 guard moved to the United States from New Zealand less than three weeks ago. Word started to circulate about Russo-Nance’s talent. He has already added double-figure D-I offers.

Wake Forest is the four-star guard’s most recent offer, coming on Sunday. The Demon Deacons join California, Maryland, Xavier, Texas Tech, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Washington State, Loyola-Marymount, Georgia, and San Jose on Russo-Nance’s rapidly expanding list.

Russo-Nance last season

While Dontae Russo-Nance may be new to the United States, he is not new to playing high-level ball. He played in the New Zealand NBL last season for the Aukland Tuatara.

The 6-foot-4 guard finished top ten in assists (4.4) and led the league in steals (2.9). As a 16-year-old playing in a professional league, he also averaged 15.4 points and 4.7 rebounds in helping to lead his team to the championship game.

Oak Hill is a part of the National Interscholastic Basketball Conference (NIBC). The league is comprised of ten teams and partners with ESPN Who’s Next. Joining Oak Hill are Montverde (FL) Academy, Bradenton (FL) IMG Academy, La Porte (IN) LaLumiere, Bel Aire (KS) Sunrise Christian, Greenville (SC) Legacy Early College, Chandler (AZ) AZ Compass, Long Island (NY) Lutheran, Mount Pleasant (UT) Wasatch Academy, and Cumberland (MD) Bishop Walsh. The NIBC will play 60 games as a part of 12 events, many of which will be televised on the ESPN Network.
