Semi Ojeleye Transferring from Duke

The Dawgs could use a small forward next year.  Wonder if Fox would make a push for him.  I don't think we're particularly holding the scholarship for Jaylen Brown.  I'd be happy with an Ojeleye transfer now, rather than having the possibility of losing out on Brown in the spring.

Ojeleye is 6' 7" tall, and was a Parade All-Ameircan/four-star recruit back in 2013 when he committed to Duke.  Powerful guy with good hops.

Semi had trouble getting onto the court at Duke.  He was efficient, but Duke's talented roster made it tough, so he's transferring immediately.  He'd be a sophomore available to play in December, just when the Dawgs would be getting into the meat of the season.

He no doubt wants to go to a good school and one in which he could get immediate playing time.  Since Forte and Geno, our small forwards, haven't locked up the position, Semi would likely start.

Worth a shot, in my opinion.
