Oregon men’s basketball forward M.J. Cage announces intentions to transfer

Oregon men’s basketball forward, M.J. Cage has announced his intention to transfer from the program.

The redshirt-freshman played in 11 games last season and scored 19 points, with a career-high 11 against Central Arkansas.

Cage was a three-star recruit out of Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana, California. His father, Michael, is a former SDSU basketball standout, NBA player and is now a television analyst for the Oklahoma City Thunder. SDSU was one of the eight teams that offered Cage out of high school.

Cage will be the sixth player to leave the program this offseason after Elijah Brown, MiKyle McIntosh and Roman Sorkin graduated, Troy Brown declared for the NBA Draft and Keith Smith announced a transfer to Pepperdine.

Abu Kigab, Paul White and Kenneth Wooten are all returning forwards and the Ducks will also be adding three top-recruits of similar positions in Bol Bol, Louis King and Miles Norris.
