Oral Roberts tourney hero Kevin Obanor has made his transfer choice

Kevin Obanor, a 6'8 forward who was one of the stars of Oral Roberts' Sweet 16 run has found a new transfer home: He announced on Friday, he has committed to Texas Tech, choosing the Red Raiders over Arkansas.


This is a major win for new Tech coach Mark Adams, who adds a player who averaged 18.7 points and 9.6 rebounds per game last season, including a 30-point, 11 rebound performance against Ohio State in the opening round of the tournament.


With Obanor added to a core which includes returnees TJ Shannon and Kevin McCullar, the Red Raiders should again be an NCAA Tournament caliber team.
