By ADAM ZAGORIAJosh Oduro is following Kim English to Providence.
The 6-foot-9 senior forward is transferring to the Big East school from George Mason and will play for his old coach.
Oduro averaged 15.6 points and 7.9 rebounds as a senior and 17.7 points and 7.5 as a junior.
“I decided to use my last year of college eligibility rather than go pro,” Oduro told On3. “My coach leaving and going there definitely had a big impact on my decision. Kim is a relentless leader who has the same vision for my game. In addition to that, Providence is a school that is rich in basketball tradition and has the best atmosphere in the Big East.”
