Chris Obekpa visits Minnesota, considering others

St. John's big man Chris Obekpa is visited Minnesota this weekend and is considering several other schools as well.

The 6-foot-9 Obekpa is also considering N.C. State, Oregon, Arizona State and Alabama, sources told SNY.tv. He will have to sit out the 2015-16 season, per NCAA transfer rules.

Obekpa was the leading shot blocker in the Big East last season, and will be a defensive presence wherever he winds up.
