Obi Romeo will not be returning to St. Joes next season. The freshman has decided to transfer. Romeo played in four games last season for the Hawks, averaging 6.5 minutes, 1 point and 2 rebounds per game.
In 2011, Romeo moved to the United States from Nigeria. He played his high basketball at Greenbrier East High School, in White Sulphur, WV. The 6-foot-10 forward, averaged 13 points, 14 rebounds, 4.5 blocks, and shot 60 percent from the field during his senior year. Unfortunately, St. Joes will not be able to see that type of productivity in a Hawks uniform.
