DePaul landed a much-needed big man as North Carolina A&T grad transfer Femi Olujobi committed to the Blue Demons on Monday.

After spending two seasons at Oakland as a role player, the 6-foot-8 big man had a breakout junior season for the Aggies, putting up 16.3 points and 7.7 rebounds per game while shooting 53 percent from the floor. Olujobi had 20 points against Clemson, 21 points against Virginia Tech and 18 points and eight rebounds against future Big East rival Georgetown last season, so he’s also had some solid performances against legitimate competition.

With Marin Maric graduating, DePaul desperately needed a big man to add to its rotation as Olujobi should see a lot of minutes for the Blue Demons this season. DePaul still needs to ideally land more frontcourt help for next season, but they have some intriguing backcourt pieces for next season if Max Strus returns.
