The others are Favour Ofili who was phenomenal for the school since she joined in January 2021, setting new Nigeria 200m indoor (22.46) and outdoor (21.96) records and Godson Oghenebrume.

Also set to debut this time in the NAIA collegiate athletics circuit is another quartermiler, Eseroghene Oguma who has joined Cumberland University which has a former Nigeria international, Cecilia Francis as an assistant coach.

Sikiru Adeyemi, a 4x400m bronze medalist at the African Athletics Championships in Mauritius last June is also listed in Cumberland University’s roster but it is not confirmed if he has travelled out of the country.
