Oturu had an all-conference worthy sophomore year at Minnesota, second team, after leading the Big Ten in rebounding and blocked shots. 

The 6-foot-10 Oturu averaged 20 points, 11 rebounds and 2.6 blocks for the Gophers and received first-team All-Big 10 defensive team honors.

Wolfson, on background, texted with three NBA front office officials for thoughts on Oturu. All have him as a first round pick, with one suggesting he'll go in the Lottery (top-14).

The NBA hasn't said yet if the Draft will remain in June, or get pushed back.
