Oregon forward C.J. Walker is transferring after just one season with the Ducks, he announced Wednesday on social media.

The former five-star recruit wants to return to his hometown of Sanford, Florida, to be with his family amid the uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.

Walker was the top-rated prospect in Oregon's 2019 class and ranked 23rd overall on last year's ESPN 100. The 6-foot-8 forward averaged four points and 2.5 boards in 14.9 minutes per game last season while making seven starts for the Ducks.
