Iowa center opts to hit NCAA transfer portal
Another Iowa basketball player has entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal.
Wednesday, backup center Josh Ogundele announced that he will be exploring his options outside of Iowa City. On Tuesday, guard Joe Toussaint also entered his name into the transfer portal.
Iowa star Keegan Murray declared for the 2022 NBA Draft this week, as well.
“I am grateful to have had the opportunity to be part of two incredible teams at the University of Iowa,” Ogundele wrote. “I want to thank my teammates and coaches for the special bonds and memories, which I will take with me forever. However, I believe it is in my best interest to enter the transfer portal and continue to chase my dreams.”
Thank you Iowa, for everything 🖤🤞🏾 pic.twitter.com/fbpxPhmCGT
