PULLMAN — Former Oregon guard Brett Kingma has announced on his Twitter page that he will be transferring to Washington State University.

There was no official confirmation from the school. The WSU basketball team is still in Australia playing a series of exhibition games.

Kingma, a skilled shooter, starred at Jackson High School in Mill Creek and was rated a 3-star college prospect by He committed to play at Oregon after entertaining scholarship offers from the Ducks and other schools, including Washington and Arizona State.

He played in just 19 contests for the Ducks last season, averaging about 10 minutes and 3.1 points per game. Oregon granted Kingma his release in early June, after which he told the Seattle Times: “I need a new system where I can reach my full potential.”

NCAA transfer rules require that Kingma sit out at least 2012-2013 basketball season. So, Kingma could be available to play for the Cougars as a redshirt sophomore in the 2013-14 season.

However, under Pac-12 rules governing athletic transfers between league schools, Kingma could be rquired to sit out two seasons. That is not expected to happen.
