CBSSports.com reporter Jeff Goodman Tweeted that John Calipari will meet with former UConn big man Alex Oriakhi today about transferring to Kentucky. As we know, Oriakhi is upset with Jim Calhoun and how he runs things for the Huskies. The team is broiled in controversy and sanctions.
The big road block in the way of this happening is that the SEC does not usually allow one year transfers. Oriakhi’s case could be presented to the SEC and they have the decision to allow him to come to an SEC school if he so chooses.
Alex is transferring mainly because of the NCAA banning the Huskies from the 2013 tournament due to sub-par academics. He is carrying a 3.6 GPA and will not have to sit out a season as is usual with a transfer.
More on this as it develops.
