Head coach Ben Johnson and the Minnesota Gophers men’s basketball team finally got some good news out of the transfer portal on Wednesday, when Oregon Ducks guard Brennan Rigsby announced his commitment to the U of M, now Big Ten rival of U of O.

Brennan Rigsby has committed to play for the Minnesota Gophers after entering the transfer portal.

Brennan Rigsby’s 2023-24 season with the Ducks doesn’t jump off the page at first glance. Despite starting only 13 out of 36 games, his playing time increased to 22.2 minutes per game, up from 18 minutes in the previous season. However, his stats remain modest, with an average of 6.1 points and 2.7 rebounds per game. At 6’3″, according to, he’s listed as a point guard, indicating that while his presence on the court is growing, his contributions in terms of points and rebounds are yet to make a significant impact.

Nonetheless, Rigsby had a very solid offensive (106.5) rating and and seems to be improving on that side of the floor. He was not a good outside shooter in his first season at Oregon (27%), but bumped that percentage pretty drastically as a junior, up to a respectable 35% in 2023-24.

But don’t get confused, Brennan isn’t going to blow you away with his shooting abilities. Where Rigsby stands out, though, is with his athletic ability. Look at this kid get up. Seriously, when he takes flight, watch out below.
