Obi began his collegiate career at Rice, where he averaged 11.4 points and 9.3 rebounds per game for the Owls as a freshman. Coach K and company recruited the Rice standout to Duke, where he sat out during the 2014-15 season, per NCAA rules. Obio played in 10 games during the 2015-16 season, and averaged 27 minutes per game. Unfortunately, injuries derailed Obi’s three-year Duke career, and now he’s looking to finish his collegiate basketball career on a high note.
Obi recalled his time with the Blue Devils when he announced his transfer in March:
“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.”
If he can stay healthy, Obi gives the Terrapins some much-needed help on the boards. He’s immediately eligible.
