With the way the Pac-12 started the season, Oregon was shaping up as a potential sleeper in the league race.
On Sunday, the Ducks’ chances to contend took a major hit as star freshman guard Jabari Brown left the program.
The news was confirmed to CBSSports.com's Jeff Goodman by a school spokesman. It was first reported by Oregon radio before today’s game against Southeast Missouri State game.
Brown is no longer listed on the team’s roster on the school’s website.
Brown, a 6-foot-4 shooting guard from California, was a five-star recruiting coming out of high school. He averaged 6.0 points in the first two games this season for Oregon, but also led the Ducks in scoring on their preseason trip to Italy.
