Okafor in high demand after getting release from LMU

As summer approaches fewer and fewer quality players are left on the board.  This is especially the case for big men since they are usually lower in supply anyway.

So when a player of Tobe Okafor's size and caliber comes back on the board at this point in the game, it is sure to draw the attention of programs with remaining scholarships.

Tobe is a 6-11 center out of Maine Central Institute.  He originally signed with Loyola Marymount University but it turns out that was not to be, as he decided to de-commit and just recently received his official release from LMU.

As soon as word got out that he was back on the market, schools immediately started expressing interest and tossing offers in his direction.

Since he de-committed Tobe has heard from Manhattan, Iona, Drexel, Temple, Vanderbilt, Georgetown, Villanova, Marquette, St. John's, Ohio State and Memphis.

The offers he has at this point include Drexel, Memphis, Marquette, Georgetown, Vanderbilt, Manhattan, St. John's, and Iona.

With time winding down and scholarships filling up Tobe knows he will have to make a quick decision but he knows what he wants to look at in making his decision so it will be the right one.  

Here is what he had to say about what he will be looking for when selecting his school of choice.

”To make my decision I will definite look at the environment, players, coaches and how I fit in with the team next season.”

It will be interesting to see what school Tobe ends up at since he has interest from a wide variety of schools.  Will he look to be an early contributor at a smaller school or take his chances and head to a more prominent program.
