Villanova guard Dylan Ennis is transferring to Oregon.
Ennis announced last month that he would leave the Wildcats after graduating in May. As a grad transfer, he will be eligible to play immediately next season for the Ducks.
When Ennis said he would transfer, Villanova coach Jay Wright said the 6'2" guard was looking to find a program where he can be a traditional point guard and a primary ball handler. He chose Oregon over Illinois and Baylor.
Ennis averaged 9.9 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.5 assists as a junior for the Wildcats in 2014-15.
The Ducks went 26–10 last season and earned a No. 8 seed in the NCAA tournament. They lose Pac-12 Player of the Year Joseph Young, who scored 20.7 points per game, but return next leading scorers Elgin Cook, Dillon Brooks and Dwayne Benjamin.
