Georgetown Recruiting Duke Grad Transfer PF Sean Obi

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-West Regional Practice Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

Duke grad transfer power forward Sean Obi visited Georgetown yesterday and will choose to play next season at either Georgetown or Maryland.

Per the News Observer:

Obi arrived at Duke in 2014 as a transfer from Rice. As a freshman with the Owls, he averaged 11.4 points and 9.3 rebounds while playing 26.4 minutes per game. But shoulder and knee injuries prevented him from ever approaching that amount of playing time or production with the Blue Devils.

He leaves Duke having played in just 10 games, averaging 0.5 points and 1.0 rebounds. All of those stats came during the 2015-16 season. He had knee surgery in New York City last June and was never in uniform for the Blue Devils this season.

“I have loved my time at Duke,” Obi said. “I’ve struggled with a few injuries but I’ve grown as both a man and a player in this program. The relationships I’ve made here will last a lifetime and I will be extremely proud to call myself a Duke graduate. I’m feeling great physically now and I’m excited to take the next step in my career.”
