Report: UConn Transfer Alex Oriakhi Visiting With Kentucky, Xavier

UConn Huskies power forward Alex Oriakhi is headed elsewhere for his senior season -- the only question is where. Jeff Goodman of CBS has offered up a couple of answers -- Oriakhi is reportedly visiting with Kentucky and Xavier to discuss a possible transfer before next season.

Oriakhi averaged 6.7 points and 4.8 rebounds per game for UConn last season, somewhat of a down year for him, and he's looking to restore his reputation as a serious threat to go high in the 2013 NBA draft. He's also been connected to North Carolina, Duke, Missouri, Washington and Gonzaga in various rumors this week.

Oriakhi is leaving UConn at the right time -- coach Jim Calhoun has an uncertain future, star players Jeremy Lamb and Andre Drummond may well be leaving this spring for the NBA, and the Huskies are ineligible for the 2013 NCAA Tournament.
