UCLA center Drew Gordon is transferring, coach Ben Howland announced at his Tuesday press conference.
"This is not a spur-of-the-moment thing," Howland said, according to the Los Angeles Times . Gordon is a former Top 50 prospect averaging 11.2 points and 5.3 rebounds per game. Those numbers ranked third and second on the team.
UCLA is 2-4 with losses to Cal State-Fullerton, Portland, Butler and Long Beach State.
The Bruins next play Sunday against top-ranked Kansas.
