(CBS) Jared Swopshire, a 6-8 forward from Louisville, will transfer to Northwestern for his senior season, according to the Louisville Courier-Journal.

Swopshire will be eligible to play immediately because he will have graduated from Louisville and will enroll in graduate classes at Northwestern.

The forward started 20 games at Louisville as a sophomore, but missed the entire 2010-11 season with a groin injury and never was able to regain his regular playing time this past season as a junior.

“The opportunity is there for him to start,” Teddy Swopshire, Jared’s father, told the Courier-Journal. “He’s replacing (John) Shurna, so that’s the style he’s going for from an offensive and a playing style standpoint.”

Swopshire averaged 7.5 points per game when he was a regular starter his sophomore year. Last year, while only playing 13.1 minutes per game off the bench, he averaged 3.3 points per game.
