“I don’t think he’s on many people’s radar yet,” said Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress.com. “He’ll need to show himself in the Big East. But what he’s doing is interesting.”
What Obekpa did Saturday night was certainly pretty interesting.He had 11 blocks, seven points and five rebounds in St. John’s 58-47 victory over Fordham at Madison Square Garden, breaking his own single-game school-record of eight set on opening night Nov. 13. Listed at 6-foot-9, Obekpa is really closer to 6-7 1/2, St. John’s coach Steve Lavin said after the performance that highlighted a school-record 15-block effort for the Johnnies.
