Updated May 6, 2019 - 12:11 pm

UNLV forward Jonathan Tchamwa Tchatchoua announced on Instagram that he is transferring to Baylor.

He entered the transfer portal shortly after coach Marvin Menzies was fired March 15.

Tchatchoua, a 6-foot-8-inch freshman, averaged 3.3 points and 3.4 rebounds this past season. He started 11 games and played in 30.

He tweeted, “Thanks Las Vegas.”

UNLV signed Tchatchoua out of the NBA Global Academy.

He will have to sit out next season under NCAA transfer rules.
