    Okoro Redshirting?

    I didn't see him on the bench tonight and he did not play even when the walk-ons were in. I know he has played a few games but I hadn't seen anything saying he was redshirting or was injured.

    I am guessing he's still with his family in grieving; he lost his brother recently, I believe.

    Probably home with his family since his brother died few days ago.

    Re: Okoro Redshirting?

    Yeah he's still back with his family. I know cyclone Alley had everyone sign posters before/after the game to send to him and his family, looked like easily 300+ signatures. Hopefully he's getting a ton of support in this extremely hard time. Theres no rush to come back to basketball right now for him, he needs to be with his family.

    Re: Okoro Redshirting?

    I think it's great news for him. Gives him an extra year with all the family trouble going on. Lets him focus on family and not on basketball (while I hope he uses the rest of the off year to help his game as well).

    Sad news. He has appeared in five games this season netting 23 minutes btw.


    If you take away first base, they'll just go find a new ballpark to play in.

    All the players found out after the OSU game I think. They were tweeting a lot about it.

    Re: Okoro Redshirting?

    I wonder if he could apply for a RS based on the low amount of PT along with the passing of his brother?? Either way, I hope he can find a way to work back into the swing of things after this tragedy.
