RENO, Nev. (KOLO) Rice forward Marquez Letcher-Ellis has decided to transfer to Nevada to play basketball for the Wolf Pack.
Letcher-Ellis, a 6-foot-7 forward, averaged 7.7 points and 4.9 rebounds per game with the Owls this season, shooting 345% from 3-point range. He averaged 10.2 points and five rebounds as a true freshman.
He was originally a three-star recruit coming out of Montverde Academy in Virginia. He chose Rice over offers from Georgia, Oklahoma and VCU.
Under NCAA transfer rules, Letcher-Ellis will have to sit out next season, then have two years of eligibility left at Nevada.
