St. John's wing LJ Figueroa is transferring to Oregon, he announced on social media Saturday.

Figueroa thanked the Red Storm in a tweet but added "Unfortunately, circumstances which are out of my control, forced me to transfer and look for a new opportunity."

"I'm looking forward to joining the University of Oregon and competing for a national championship," Figueroa wrote.

Figueroa had declared for the NBA draft in March before ultimately deciding to continue his college career.
