Jaume "Jay" Sorolla, a graduate transfer center on the University of Cincinnati men's basketball team, announced he will be leaving to pursue a professional career overseas Monday evening via Twitter.
It’s been a pleasure USA...my beloved Europe here I come🔥— jaume sorolla (Jay) (@jay_sorolla) February 4, 2020
Sorolla averaged 3.3 points, 2.4 rebounds and 0.6 rebounds in 15 games this year. After suffering a foot injury in December, Sorolla saw his stats decrease upon his return.
He scored a season-high 11 points against East Carolina in January.
Before transferring to UC, Sorolla played three seasons at Valparaiso University. In three seasons, he finished with 424 points, 42 assists and 328 rebounds.
Sorolla is not the first player to leave UC this year. In December, junior guard Trevor Moore entered the transfer portal before signing with Morgan State.
Sorolla will return to Europe in hopes of playing professional basketball. His father Paco Sorolla played professional basketball in Spain, and his brother Joan is currently playing in Spain as well.
