Florida State freshman Ikechukwu Obiagu announced via social media he's transferring schools.

Obiagu, a center on the Seminoles basketball team, said he's transferring to Seton Hall.

He led FSU with 71 blocks in 33 games last season.

A native of Nigeria, Obiagu is a 7-footer that aided FSU's defense en route to an Elite Eight appearance in last season's NCAA Men's Basketball tournament.

The Seminoles lost to eventual national runner-up Michigan in that Elite Eight game.

"First of all, I want to thank the schools and coaches that recruited me," Obiagu said in a tweet. "But I've decided to further my education and basketball opportunities at Seton Hall University."
