Junior forward Sean Obi will transfer out of Duke following his graduation this spring semester, per an official press release on the Duke athletics website. He’ll be immediately available to transfer to another school upon his graduation.
“This was an anticipated decision and we appreciate everything Sean contributed to our program over the last three years,” Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski told GoDuke.com. “Unfortunately, injuries played a predominant role in his time here. He is now in a much better place physically and we wish him nothing but the best in the next step of his journey.”
Obi, who transferred from Rice prior to the 2014-2015 season, played in 10 games for the Blue Devils, averaging .5 points and one rebound per game.
He’s the second player to transfer out of Duke since the Blue Devils season ended.
“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.”
It is unclear as of right now where Obi intends to transfer to finish out his collegiate basketball career. He’ll be able to play immediately wherever he ends up.
