There are plenty of new faces coming to Oregon basketball this season. With talented players such as Dylan Ennis, Tyler Dorsey and Kendall Small coming in, there will be a lack of minutes deeper down the bench.

As a result, Oregon sophomore guard Ahmaad Rorie will transfer from the program, likely to the University of Montana. Four of Montana's guards are upperclassmen, so by the time Rorie is eligible to play for the 2016-17 season, he'll likely see much more time on the court than he would have with the Ducks.

Last season in his first year on campus, Rorie appeared in all 36 games with 15 starts. He was one of five players for the Ducks to appear in all 36 games. The 6-1 guard averaged 4.1 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 18.8 minutes per game. It's likely that Rorie would've seen a significant decrease in playing time this next season in Eugene.

Rorie was a 3-star recruit out of Tacoma, Wash. and chose Oregon over Washington and Washington State after de-comitting from California last spring.
