St. John's transfer Chris Obekpa has announced his commitment to UNLV.

Obekpa announced his decision with an Instagram post Wednesday afternoon. CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein confirmed that the post indicated a commitment.

Obekpa, a 6'10" big man, will sit out the 2015-16 season and have one year of eligibility remaining. One of the top shot-blockers in the country, he averaged 5.8 points, seven rebounds and 3.1 blocks in 27.3 minutes per game last season as a junior. He reportedly visited UNLV earlier in the week.

Obekpa left the program in June, after new head coach Chris Mullin and his staff replaced Steve Lavin at St. John's.
