Gophers No Longer Interested In St. John's Center


Per Marcus, the Gophers are no longer pursuing St. John's transfer Chris Obekpa:

Minnesota has a scholarship available for the 2015 class but decided the 6-foot-10 center wasn't the right fit. The Red Storm's all-time leading shot blocker is transferring because of an issue with new coach Chris Mullin's stricter rules.

Personally I'm ok with this. Tying up 3 scholarships to transfers in a year where depth is an issue seemed off. Then again, this assumes they'll land an impact player if they bank it until the 2016 class too. So mileage on that TAKE may vary.
