WeAreDePaul.com first reported last month that Obi was leaving the DePaul basketball program and seeking to transfer to another school.
Obi had also considered Division II program Southern Indiana.
The Nigerian born center appeared in five games as a redshirt sophomore for the Blue Demons and played 3.2 minutes per game while averaging 0.2 points and 1.2 rebounds per game.
Obi will have two years of eligibility remaining at his new school.
Obi will be playing for former Georgia interim coach and Naval Academy head coach Pete Hermann. Hermann coached big man David Robinson while at Navy.
This will be the first season of men's basketball at Young Harris. The school was a member of the National Junior College Athletic Association last season, but beginning with the 2010-11 academic/athletic year, all Young Harris athletics teams will compete at the four-year varsity level according to the school's website. Young Harris College is currently in the process of applying to become a member of NCAA Division II.
