After just one year with Colorado, Kenan Guzonjic will continue his basketball career at Barry University.

After just one year at the University of Colorado, Kenan Guzonjic has found a new basketball home.

The former Buffaloes forward has made a verbal commitment to Barry University, a Division II basketball power based in Miami Shores, Fla.

Guzonjic arrived at CU on the heels of knee surgery and never got on track with the Buffs. The Bosnian national appeared in six of the first seven games of the 2015-16 season but ultimately made just 13 appearances overall. Guzonjic logged just 12 minutes in Pac-12 Conference play, with his top performance occurring on Dec. 19 in a blowout win against Hampton when he posted eight points and five rebounds.

Guzonjic and Tre’Shaun Fletcher announced they were transferring out of CU’s program a month ago, unexpectedly opening up two scholarships for head coach Tad Boyle. One of those was given to Los Angeles-area forward Lucas Siewert, a 6-foot-10 player who signed a letter of intent last week. The other is expected to go to a transfer, with former Arkansas guard Jimmy Whitt and former Drake 7-footer Dominik Olejniczak both expressing interest in the Buffs. Each of those players has three years of eligibility remaining.

Fletcher, a senior-to-be, remains undecided, though has reported he is considering Louisiana Tech, Boise State, Nevada, and Cal Poly, among others.

Barry reached the quarterfinals of the NCAA Division II Tournament this past year, and because he is transferring down a classification Guzonjic will be eligible immediately. He has two years of eligibility remaining.
