Duke graduate transfer Sean Obi reportedly down to Maryland and Georgetown

Duke graduate transfer Sean Obi has narrowed his list of potential destinations to Maryland and Georgetown, according to CBS Sports, and a decision could come "soon."

The 6-foot-9 forward, who would be eligible to play immediately in 2017-18, reportedly visited College Park and Georgetown earlier this week. Vanderbilt, Southern Methodist and Georgia Tech also had been under consideration.

Injuries have limited the Nigeria native since he transferred to Duke in 2014. He did not play last season, after undergoing offseason knee surgery, and appeared in just 11 games for the Blue Devils in 2015-16.

As a freshman at Rice, Obi led Conference USA in rebounding (9.3 per game) and averaged 11.4 points. He started to experience knee problems after leaving for Durham, but a healthy Obi would be a boon for the Terps.

With the departure of starting senior center Damonte Dodd and graduate transfer forward L.G. Gill, Obi would be expected to back up rising senior center Michal Cekovsky, who's also coming off an injury-plagued junior year.
