The Pac-12 Freshman of the Year and the school made the announcement Thursday, hardly a surprise given he wasn't expected to stay at Cal beyond his freshman season.

Brown averaged 14.6 points and 5.4 rebounds while starting all 34 games for the Golden Bears, who lost as a No. 4 seed in the first round of the NCAA Tournament to Hawaii.
