Four-star Cretin-Derham Hall junior Daniel Oturu is about to give one school a potential game-changing big man for the future.
The 6-foot-9, 220-pound Oturu posted on Twitter Wednesday night that he's ending his recruitment with an announcement Friday morning. He has scholarship offers from Kansas, Baylor, Minnesota, Nebraska, Iowa, Creighton and Marquette among others.
Oturu is Minnesota's No. 1 ranked player in the Class of 2018, according to ESPN.com. He's ranked second in the state by Scout.com and Rivals.com and third by 247Sports.com.
