Oregon Ducks guard Dylan Ennis has been granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA, according to Oregon Live. The decision will provide more depth for a team that only lost one starter from last season, senior Elgin Cook.
Ennis averaged 9.9 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.5 assists for the Villanova Wildcats during the 2014-15 season before transferring to Oregon. Ennis only appeared in two games for the Ducks because of a recurring left-foot injury he sustained while playing for his former Big East team.
Oregon hasn't captured a National Championship since 1939, which was the inaugural game, but Oregon should have a legitimate chance to compete for one this upcoming season. The Ducks return shooting guard Dillon Brooks, point guard Tyler Dorsey, and center Chris Boucher (and his 7-foot-4 wingspan) from a team who won the Pac-12 regular season and conference tournament, received its first number one seed in the NCAA Tournament, and was one win away from a spot in the Final Four.
