Following the departure of Danny Manning to Wake Forest, Tulsa signee Mitchell Wilbekin said he has been told by TU officials they will grant his release, as reported by the Tulsa World.
Wilbekin (Gainesville, Fla.) signed with Tulsa in November over South Florida, Vanderbilt, Central Florida and Wyoming. The Tulsa World said that Tulsa remains an option.
Wilbekin is the younger brother of University of Florida guard Scott Wilbekin. The elder Wilbekin led Florida to the Final Four, eventually losing to national champion UConn in the national semifinals.
