Duke graduate transfer Sean Obi will reportedly play for the Maryland Terrapins next season.

On Thursday, Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com reported the news and noted Obi chose Maryland over the likes of Georgia Tech and Georgetown.

The 6'9" Obi didn't appear in a game for the Blue Devils last season because of injury and played just 27 total minutes and tallied five points and 10 rebounds in 2015-16. However, he thrived as a freshman at Rice in 2013-14 with 11.4 points and 9.3 rebounds per game.

If he can remain healthy, Obi adds frontcourt depth to a Terrapins team that will be without the departed Damonte Dodd and L.G. Gill.

Michal Cekovsky, Justin Jackson, Ivan Bender and incoming freshman Bruno Fernando, who is a 4-star recruit, per Scout, figure to play plenty of minutes, but Obi gives them another body down low who can battle for rebounds and score on the blocks.
