Morgan transfers to Baylor

J'mison Morgan, who was dismissed by UCLA last month, has transferred to Baylor, the Bears announced Monday.

The Dallas native will have two years of eligibility remaining after sitting out the 2010-11 season.

"J'mison is someone we as a Baylor coaching staff are familiar with since we recruited while he was in high school at South Oak Cliff," Bears head coach Scott Drew said in a statement released by the school. "His size, strength and shot-blocking ability will fit into our system nicely. We are excited to have him join our Baylor family."

The 6-foot-10 center played in 40 games over the past two seasons as a reserve with the Bruins. He averaged 2.1 points and 1.1 rebounds, less than the Bruins expected when they recruited him.

Morgan was suspended for one game in early March for missing a team meeting, and he didn't play in UCLA's two Pac-10 tournament games. He also missed seven games recovering from a partially torn quadriceps and struggled with conditioning throughout the season.
