One of the best available players in the NCAA Basketball transfer portal is Cliff Omoruyi, a 6'11 center from Nigeria, who played his high school ball in New Jersey. Before the current historical recruiting class that Rutgers has, this big man was one of the highest-rated prospects to join the program out of high school, ranking in the top-40.

Omoruyi has been good ever since, starting 104 games in four years, earning multiple Big Ten all-defensive honors. He's coming off a season of averaging 10.4 ppg and 8.3 rpg, along with a career-high 2.9 blocks per game.

When Omoruyi entered the portal, he had interest from any team that needed a center to anchor the paint. Earlier in the offseason, he had a list of 12 teams in contention. Since then, he's gone on an official visit with four of them, which happens to be the official final list of options.

These are four interesting options, all from different conferences and with varying selling points to offer the big man. At the same time, there are also some reasons or negative recruiting pitches as to why he shouldn't go there.

All four teams has had some roster changes since the last time I wrote about Omoruyi. So why not do an update, looking at his potential fit with each team? Here's a closer look at the pros and cons of the final four contenders ahead of a decision on Sunday.
