They're also setting him up to announce the draft pick of his hometown team, the Baltimore Ravens.

Standing on the stage at McDonogh School, Onwuanibe received the news from coach John Harbaugh in a video.

Eight grader T.J. Onwuanibe was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer in 2015 and his wish for the Make-A-Wish foundation was to announce a Ravens draft pick.

The Baltimore Sun reports (http://bsun.md/2pUANvS) 14-year-old Obioha "TJ" Onwuanible was chosen Friday to announce the Ravens first-round pick in the 2017 National Football League draft.

When asked what he wanted his wish to be from Make-A-Wish, he thought about the NFL Draft. The wish reveal was extra special, including appearances from the Ravens cheerleaders and Poe.

World oil demand growth in 2016 was kept broadly unchanged at 1.38 million barrels per day (mb/d), averaging 95.05 mb/d. The surprise build, along with an increase in United States output and imports from OPEC, pressured prices.

Onquanibe recently leaned that his cancer is now in remission.

No word yet on which name TJ will be announcing, but the Ravens have the #16 pick in the draft.

Earlier this month, Onwuanibe organized a school drive to donate pajamas to terminally ill children, according to WBAL-TV in Baltimore.

"We're all thrilled for you", Harbaugh continued.
