Prince Oduro announced on twitter earlier today that he will be transferring to the USF Men’s Basketball program after a quick stint in Starkville.

The 6’8 forward from Canada flirted with USF back in 2018, while also considering UMass, but ultimately chose to go to Mississippi State after transferring from Siena. During his time at Siena, he started in 27 of the 31 games averaging 9.1 points and 5.1 rebounds per game, good enough to earn All-MAAC Rookie Team. He also won a gold medal with the Canadian U-19 basketball team in 2017, where he got himself 6.6 points and 4.1 rebounds per game.

His time at Mississippi State saw his minutes decrease in extremely limited action, averaging 1.2 points and 0.9 rebounds per game coming off the bench in 21 games. Following the conclusion of the 2019-2020 season, he announced his intentions to transfer and narrowed his list to five schools on March 28th. He will have two seasons of eligibility left, and joins a stacked class of four-star Caleb Murphy, 6’10 center/forward Emmanuel Okpomo, and Iowa State transfer Luke Anderson.
