Duquesne Interested In Grad Transfer Daniel Utomi

Duquesne Interested In Grad Transfer Daniel Utomi

Soon after taking over at Duquesne, Keith Dambrot brought a couple players from Akron that he was familiar with in Tavian Dunn-Martin and Michael Hughes.

It appears as though, they’ll be looking to bring in another one.

Akron forward Daniel Utomi has decided to leave the school as a grad transfer and will be eligible immediately. This season for the Zips, Utomi averaged 14.2 points, 5.5 rebounds and shot 37 percent from 3-point range. His 89 3-pointers ranked first in the MAC and 47th in the NCAA. Last season, he averaged a team best 16.7 point per game.

Utomi (6-foot-6, 215 pounds) is a player that will draw major interest from high Division I programs, so despite his relationship with Dambrot, landing him won’t be automatic for Duquesne.

A source tells Pittsburgh Sports Now that Utomi is a character kid and has a similar skill-set to Pitt’s Jared Wilson-Frame. Utomi is a stretch power forward with the capability to shoot the three ball like a three man.

Utomi would fill a big hole for Duquesne as they have a major need for a consistent three-point shooter.
