Former Iowa men’s basketball players Ahron Ulis, Josh Ogundele pick new schools
Ulis started 27 games for Iowa last season, his third in the program
Ahron Ulis, who started 27 games as junior last season for the Iowa men’s basketball team, is transferring to Big Ten rival Nebraska.
Ulis, from Chicago Heights, Ill., spent the last three seasons with Iowa. He averaged 22.5 minutes, 6.1 points and 2.1 assists per game for the Hawkeyes last season.
Ulis becomes the first Hawkeye men’s basketball player to transfer to a Big Ten program under Fran McCaffery. He announced he was entering the NCAA transfer portal on March 22. He visited Nebraska Sunday and made his announcement Monday.
On his Instagram feed, Josh Ogundele announced he was transferring to Middle Tennessee State.
Ogundele, a center, had also spent three seasons at Iowa. He appeared in 38 games over that time, averaging 1.5 points.
Iowa has added one player from the portal this offseason, forward Ben Krikke of Valparaiso. The Hawkeyes have room for another transfer should they choose to add one.
