Oregon Basketball: PG Ahmaad Rorie Transferring to Missouri


The Oregon Ducks look to be set with talent at the Point Guard position with the incoming 2015 Recruiting Class and one player has decided to transfer from the team. Transfer Dylan Ennis from Villanova, incoming Freshman Tyler Dorsey and Kendall Small and the returning Casey Benson will help shape the 2015 Oregon Ducks. Point Guard Ahmaad Rorie will not be a part of the team. He has elected to transfer to Missouri, according to Duck Territory and 247Sports.com.

Rorie averaged a decent amount of playing time averaging over eighteen minutes per game with Oregon to go along with just over four points per game. He will have plenty of time to learn the system at Missouri as he will sit out a year due to transfer rules, but will be in line for a likely starting spot on the roster in 2016.

According to the Billings Gazette, Rorie will have a challenge ahead of him with two players who will be entering their Senior season in 2016. Starter Mario Dunn is entering his Junior year averaging just under eight points per game and transfer Walter Wright is putting up Joseph Young-like numbers at over twenty-two points per game on average.

Rorie will have three years left to play after sitting out a season.
