Athletic forward Obediah “Obi” Church committed to Missouri State yesterday. The 6-foot-7, 205-pound forward was pretty straight forward about why he made his decision.

“What led me to picking Missouri State was that the academics were really good there,” said Church. “I like the coaches and the basketball program. Both are really good,” Church finished.

Church has offers from Bradley, Illinois-Chicago, Indiana State, Tennessee State and Wisconsin-Green Bay. As a junior he averaged 14 points, 11 rebounds and three blocked shots per game.
