Ahron Ulis, Josh Ogundele transferring from Iowa men’s basketball team
Ulis was a junior starter, Ogundele a junior reserve in the season just ended
IOWA CITY -- Openings on the Iowa men’s basketball roster just increased by two.
Junior guard Ahron Ulis and junior center Josh Ogundele have announced their intentions to transfer from Iowa.
Ulis, from Chicago Heights, Ill., played in 84 games at Iowa, and started 27 games this season when he averaged 6.1 points and 2.1 assists.
“I want to thank the Iowa coaching staff for giving me the opportunity to play college basketball at this level and become a Big Ten champion,” said Ulis.
“Being a part of three NCAA Tournament teams and winning a Big Ten championship with my teammates is something that I am extremely thankful for and will forever cherish,” Ogundele said.
London’s Ogundele played in 38 games over three seasons. He scored 21 points in the 2022-23 season. He entered the transfer portal last season before withdrawing.
“We are all appreciative of Ahron and Josh’s contributions to our program the past three years,” said Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery. “Both were good teammates on three NCAA Tournament teams and helped us win a Big Ten championship. Both Ahron and Josh have bright futures. My staff and I will assist both players during this transition.”
With the assumption Kris Murray enters the NBA draft, Iowa will have three openings for scholarship players. It has been reported -- but not yet confirmed -- that Iowa City West grad Even Brauns will transfer from Belmont to the Hawkeyes.
Brauns, a power forward, has played three seasons at Belmont, and started 30 games this season for the 21-11 Bruins of the Missouri Valley Conference.
