CHINO HILLS (CBSLA.com) — A high school basketball star was rushed to a hospital Wednesday after hitting his head while skateboarding.

Nnamdi Okongwu, 17, played center for Chino Hills High School.

There are conflicting reports as to the athlete’s condition.

Classmates are offering condolences on Twitter; the hospital says Okongwu is alive but couldn’t provide his condition.

Okongwu’s coach says the 6-foot-9 player was being scouted by several colleges and had been offered a scholarship to Loyola Marymount University.

Details of the accident have not been released.
