Personal
Son of Bishop Ken Obanor and Pastor Johanna Obanor ... majoring in sports management at ORU.

Head Coach Paul Mills on Obanor
“Kevin has the versatility to make perimeter jump shots and cause havoc on the interior. He is an elite rebounder and finisher. I’ve seen Kevin play more than a dozen times and each time you watch him he is improving. His competitiveness will allow him to play early and he has a high ceiling as a player due to his work ethic. Kevin is from Houston and is a phenomenal young man that will thrive here at ORU.”
