Bobby Hurley is a busy man. After adding Buffalo transfer Shannon Evans Friday morning, he signed JUCO recruit Obina Oleka late Friday afternoon. Hod Rabino of DevilsDigest was first on Twitter with the news.

He sat out last season, but averaged 25.6 points and 13.6 rebounds per game at State College of Florida (Manatee-Sarasota) in 2013-14. At ASU, he will be eligible immediately and have two years to play two seasons. Standing 6-foot-7, 240 pounds, he'll provide depth to the Sun Devils front court.

Oleka was originally committed to Texas out of prep school in 2013 but was released from his NLI there. He was a 3-star recruit according to Rivals and a 2-star recruit according to ESPN out of high school.

Some film of Oleka can be seen below:
