Utah State basketball star and Mountain West Conference Player of the Year Great Osobor has announced he will transfer to University of Washington where a king's ransom in NIL money awaits him. 

According to ESPN, Osobor has name, image and likeness agreements in place that will give him the highest-known valuation in college basketball this season, at $2 million. 

"I would like to thank God for putting me in this position," Osobor said. "Washington will allow me to maximize my potential as a player in my final year of college basketball. Coach [Danny] Sprinkle has been with me every step of the way since I came from England, and I cannot wait to help the Huskies get back to the NCAA tournament."

At 6-foot-8, Osobor averaged 17.7 points, 9.0 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.4 blocks and 1.3 steals per game last season as he helped Utah State win the Mountain West regular-season championship and earn an at-large NCAA tournament bid.

Osobor has one year of college eligibility left. 

"I was not a highly recruited player coming out of England, with only a few Division I offers," Osobor told ESPN. "Assistant coach Chris Haslam had a huge part in recruiting me to Montana State, and I owe him a lot for that. I am more motivated than ever to show young kids that it doesn't matter where you come from. If you put in the work and necessary sacrifice, your time will come."
