7 time All American 200m and 400m runner Obi Igbokwe transfers from Arkansas to UH T&F


Huge transfer. Obi is originally from the Woodlands so he’s coming home. Last year, he finished 6th in the 400m and 5th in the 4x400 at the Outdoor Championships. He’ll team with Montgomery to make a very strong 400m team and 4x400m team.
