As Chris Obekpa's minutes fluctuated toward the end of the season, rumors began to spread that he could be looking elsewhere.

His release from the Red Storm should come soon.

Obekpa, a 6-foot-9 sophomore, averaged 3.8 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.9 blocks this past season. He's one of the premier shot-blockers in the country, but his numbers took a dip across the board this season. He played just 13 total minutes in the Big East tournment and NIT.

Baylor and Oregon have been rumored as potential landing spots, according to sources.
