Francis Okoro is entering the NCAA transfer portal after two seasons on the Oregon men’s basketball team, the school confirmed Friday.


Okoro just completed his sophomore season with the Ducks. The 6-foot-9 forward from Imo, Nigeria, began the year as a starter but saw his playing time significantly decline after he was replaced in the starting lineup early in the Pac-12 Conference schedule.


Okoro played in 29 of Oregon’s 31 games this season, missing one game early in the season with an injury and another one when he missed the first Civil War game in early February to return to Nigeria for the funeral of his father. He started 18 games and averaged 17.2 minutes per game while averaging 3.3 points per game and 4.2 rebounds per game.


However, Okoro didn’t start the final 12 games of the season and averaged only 13.8 minutes, 1.8 points and 2.4 rebounds in Pac-12 games after being replaced by freshman Chandler Lawson in the starting lineup.


Okoro’s decision to enter the transfer portal leaves the Ducks with one open scholarship slot for next season. Okoro is the only Oregon player who could return next season who reportedly won’t do so. The Ducks lose three seniors in Payton Pritchard, Anthony Mathis and Shakur Juiston.


Along with the players from this season who can return, Oregon will add redshirt freshman Lok Wur. Amauri Hardy will be a graduate transfer from UNLV, and Eugene Omoruyi and Eric Williams sat out this past season after transferring from Rutgers and Duquesne, respectively.


Oregon also is adding sophomore guard Aaron Estrada, who will sit out after transferring from St. Peter’s. Jalen Terry, a four-star guard out of Michigan, is the only freshman in Oregon’s 2020 recruiting class.
