Wilson transferring to Marquette from Oregon

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Forward Jamil Wilson is transferring to Marquette from Oregon and will have three years of eligibility left beginning in 2011-12.

Wilson, a former prep standout from Racine, started 14 of 26 games with the Ducks last season and averaged 4.7 points and 3.2 rebounds per game.

Marquette coach Buzz Williams says Wilson will fit well in the program and has "extremely high" potential. The departure comes three months after Ernie Kent was fired as Oregon's coach after 13 seasons.
