Illini Center Kofi Cockburn Enters Transfer Portal

CHICAGO (CBS) -- Illini center Kofi Cockburn has entered the transfer portal which is unexpected on a couple fronts.

First, Cockburn declared for the NBA Draft and seemed committed to going pro.

He does have until July 7 to withdraw.

If Cockburn did withdraw, it is surprising that he wouldn't return to the Illini.

The Illini got the No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament this year, but went on to lose to the Loyola Ramblers.
