Udoh Transferring to Baylor
Former Michigan center Ekpe Udoh has announced that he will be transferring to Baylor. "I transferred from Michigan because I wanted to get closer to home," Udoh said. "I visited Baylor in May and then came back last week. I really hit it off with Tweety Carter. This is the school where I feel most comfortable." Udoh will sit out a year, and then likely become the same shot-blocking force he was in Ann Arbor. "I'll play at center or forward or wherever they need me — and I think the opportunity will be there," Udoh said. "Defense is obviously the area where I do best, but I’m going to work extremely hard to develop my offensive game." The Big Ten's Defensive Player of the Year, Udoh averaged 2.9 blocks per game to go with 6.0 points and 5.0 rebounds.
