IOWA CITY — Iowa sophomore Josh Ogundele announced Wednesday he wants to chase his dreams at another school.
The university issued a news release noting Ogundele had notified Coach Fran McCaffery “of his intentions to transfer from the University of Iowa and the men’s basketball program.”
“I am grateful to have had the opportunity to be a part of two incredible teams at the University of Iowa,” Ogundele said in the release. “I want to thank my teammates and coaches for the special bonds and memories, which is something 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.”
McCaffery said Ogundele was a “good teammate.”
“All of us are appreciative of Josh’s efforts and contributions to our program,” McCaffery said in the release. “... Josh has a bright future, and we wish him good luck moving forward.”
In two seasons with the Hawkeyes, the London native saw limited action in 27 games. Ogundele totaled 29 points, 24 rebounds, five blocks, and four steals in 19 games as a sophomore.
