Ducks MBB Lands St. John’s Star LJ Figueroa

After initially declaring for the NBA Draft back in March, St. John’s stud LJ Figueroa is transferring to Oregon.

He posted his decision on Twitter and said he looks forward to “joining the University of Oregon and competing for a national championship.”

Figueroa led the Red Storm in scoring at 14.5 points per game. The 6-foot-6 guard was also in the top five in the other major “per game” categories, including No. 1 in steals (1.9 per game), No. 3 in assists (2.1) and No. 4 in rebounds (4.5).

In his post, Figueroa states “unfortunately circumstances that were out of my control, forced me to transfer and look for a new opportunity.”

The Twitter reaction was big as well.
