Normal West alum and former University of Oregon big man Francis Okoro has decided to transfer to Saint Louis after two seasons for the Oregon.

For the Ducks, Okoro appeared in 29 games averaging 3.3 points per game and 4.2 rebounds per contest. 

The Redbirds were listed on Okoro's interested teams list, and many ISU fans were rooting for Okoro to return home. Okoro delivered his decision via tweet on Friday night.

The Redbirds have added two big men to next year's team already this off season, both being 6'10 Dusan Mahorcic and Alex Kotov. So while the need was not there, many of ISU faithfuls were showing their support to bring in Okoro.
