Calipari to Meet UConn Transfer Alex Oriakhi Today

GoodmanCBS Kentucky's John Calipari expected to meet with UConn transfer Alex Oriakhi today. Oriakhi has one year left and can play immediately.

Oriakhi's father told Hearst Connecticut Media Group on Tuesday that his son will "definitely visit" North Carolina, Duke, Kentucky and Missouri.

UConn forward Alex Oriakhi, perhaps the most sought-after transfer in the country, will “definitely visit” North Carolina, Duke, Kentucky and Missouri, his father told Hearst Connecticut Media Group Tuesday.

Oriakhi requested his release from UConn on March 21. He won’t have to sit out a year if UConn’s 2013 tournament ban holds up, which seems to be the most likely scenario at this point. The school is currently awaiting word on an appeal for a postseason waiver. If the appeal is rejected, UConn could sneak into the tournament if the NCAA changes its timetable for APR data collection.
