7-Footer Okoroh Changes Twitter Commitment to Cal from Tennessee After Cuonzo Martin Is Hired

It isn’t often that  you see a basketball player commit to two different schools in two days on Twitter.

But that’s exactly what 7-foot-1 Kingsley Okoroh of Phoenix (AZ) Westwind Prep did.

On Monday, Okoroh announced via Twitter, “Just committed to the university of Tennessee! Can’t wait to play in the SEC next year.”

Okoroh then proceeded to retweet a lot of people congratulating him on Twitter for his decision.

Yet that didn’t last long.

After former Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin was introduced as the new coach at Cal on Tuesday, Okoroh changed course.

“I want to thank The University Of Tennessee and the fans for your support unfortunately I announce my de-commitment from Tennessee,” he Tweeted Tuesday afternoon.

“I announce my commitment to the University of California Berkeley. I’m very excited to be a BEAR !”

And there you have it.
