Gophers’ Oturu turning pro
Gophers sophomore center Daniel Oturu will enter the 2020 NBA Draft.
Oturu, a Cretin-Derham Hall graduate, averaged a 20.1 points per game and 11.3 rebounds per game in 31 starts during his sophomore season at the University of Minnesota.
Oturu has a chance to be the first Gopher selected in the first round of the NBA Draft since Kris Humphries in 2004.
I love the University of Minnesota with all my heart. It will forever be my home. Thank you Gopher Nation for embracing a hometown kid.????????— GTM DAN ?????? (@oturu65) March 24, 2020
