Gophers freshman point guard Bryan “BJ” Greenlee will transfer to play for another program next season, sources confirmed Saturday to the Star Tribune.

Greenlee, a 6-foot, 190-pound Florida native, averaged 2.6 minutes in 19 games for the Gophers during the 2019-20 season. He spoke to Richard Pitino on Friday about wanting to transfer for more playing time opportunities, sources said.

Pitino is expected to return starting point guard Marcus Carr, while also adding incoming four-star recruit Jamal Mashburn Jr.

A former three-star recruit and standout for The Rock School in Gainesville, Fla., Greenlee is the second guard to transfer from Minnesota this spring.

Last month, starting junior guard Payton Willis announced he was transferring and signed to open the late period with the College of Charleston in South Carolina.

The Gophers signed transfers Liam Robbins from Drake and Brandon Johnson from Western Michigan last month, but Pitino now has two scholarships open for next season.
