Davis Rozitis, a freshman center on the USC men’s basketball team, has decided to transfer, a source close to the situation told The Times on Friday.

Rozitis, a 7-foot, 215-pound Latvia native, played in just nine games last season. Considered a raw project at best, he is still learning the game and spent most of last season trying to add weight to his frail frame.


It is not clear where Rozitis might transfer. The source said he was visiting UC Santa Barbara on Friday.

Even without Rozitis and Leonard Washington, who was kicked off the team in March, USC still has one of the most stacked front courts in the Pacific 10 Conference with forwards Nikola Vucevic and Alex Stepheson, who each averaged a near double-double last season.
