… Spoke to someone with knowledge of Alex Oriakhi’s thinking in the search for a new school. He’s looking for a place that promises 30 minutes per game. (This, of course, would be hard to guarantee anywhere, especially at a power-conference school.)
The family is talking to Duke, North Carolina, Kentucky, Kansas, Ohio State, Missouri, Southern Cal, UCLA and NC State, and plans to take its time making the decision. To play at Kentucky or Missouri, Oriakhi would have to go for an academic program not offered at UConn and obtain a waiver from the SEC.
