Oraby played in 34 games last season and had six points and 3.6 rebounds per game last year, but perhaps his biggest asset is his shot-blocking ability, recording 56 blocks with the Owls (a school record). He also was a very efficient shooter in his touches, shooting nearly 63% from the field and nailing 71% of their free throw attempts.
Baxter Holmes of the Los Angeles Times has more on the story. As a junior, Oraby has two years of eligibility left. The Trojans plan to file a hardship waiver to try and ensure he can play this season. If the appeal fails, he will have to sit ou the upcoming season. The Trojans now have three seven-footers on their roster, with both Dewayne Dedmon and James Blasczyk already on the team.
