Semi Ojeleye was a very highly touted recruit out of Kansas in 2013 who picked the Blue Devils over Oregon, Indiana and Stanford. But due to an abundance of talent at Duke the forward hasn’t gotten the playing time he’d like so he’s decided to transfer.
School officials said Sunday that Ojeleye received a full release and is expected to transfer to another Division I school. Ojeleye is a 6-foot-8, 230-pound forward from Ottawa, Kansas, who averaged three points and 2.3 rebounds in six games for the second-ranked Blue Devils (8-0).
Coach Mike Krzyzewski called Ojeleye “an excellent student and a great representative of our school and basketball program.”
This is probably the best decision Ojeleye could make. He only averaged 4.7 minutes a game last season, is only averaging 10.5 this year and with the recent commitment of Chase Jeter, it’s unknown if he’d see a significant increase in playing time next season.
