St. John’s transfer Chris Obekpa has committed to UNLV, sources told CBS Sports.

He must sit out the 2015-16 season per NCAA rules and will have one year of eligibility remaining beginning in 2016-17.

The 6-foot-10, 240-pound shot-blocker averaged 5.8 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 3.1 blocks per game last season for St. John’s.

He was suspended for the NCAA Tournament after reportedly failing a drug test. Obekpa was also suspended for two exhibition games at the start of his sophomore season.

UNLV finished 18-15 last season.
