Yes, this would be a nice pickup......never too many guys who can shoot the ball.

And it's better if the ball goes in the hoop.

This is outstanding news. He'd be a great fit for us and I think we'd be a great fit fir him with so many seniors departing and a potentially great recruiting class coming in. There's an obvious vacancy for him to slide right into and an offense that would really suit his game.

I actually would say pass. I know he is always hurt! Guys on the team have told me he separates his shoulder every two weeks and has zero strength. Can't play next year anyways.

Rough take.

Probably one of the best transfer on the entire market.

No one else would could bring in would play next year, sitting a year makes 2019 class not be 7-8 in size...

This would be big for us. Real big.
With every player on the roster who plays his position graduating next year he would be PERFECT fit.
We’re going to have a LOT of newcomers if we don’t get transfers.
Muni, James, Odoms, Reynolds, and Calixte will all be basketball seniors.

funny, my parents...in Wichita...think he is a TO machine...in the most crucial times. Granted they are older, but my sis played D1 and they watch a lot of WSU ball...(which doesn't mean jack either way~)

just saying

I got no idea about him

Great shooter, poor defender. Hope the off year makes him a more balanced player but if OU gets the chance you gotta take him imo.

I'd take him in a heartbeat. WSU was awful at late game inbound plays this season, and he took an unfair share of the blame from a lot of their fans. I wouldn't allow two or three plays where the play calls were less than stellar make you think he wouldn't be a very good addition. For what it's worth, he also led their team in advanced stats.

lol...yup that's my parents "beef"...the "one" play I saw it was a CF from the beginning...his D is a little suspect (he'd fit right in! lol) but he def is a shooter.

Kid was a sophomore last season. By the time he plays a game for the Sooners, he'd be a 4th year junior on a team with a lot of freshmen. He'd be a great shooter and a team leader. Flawed? Who isn't? The only reason to pass on this guy is if we could be sure we could get someone better and there's honestly no way to be sure of that.

I love this kid. He is more than just a shooter. Great basketball IQ and he'd fit perfectly with what OU needs next year. He is a take for sure and I hope OU can land him. He will be one of their best players season after next for sure.

Overrated. If I wanted to get balance in the force, I would root for the dark souled Kansas Jayhawks!

If he can't play D, I don't want him. This team/program needs a culture change.

I couldn’t agree more. But, if he can score AND play defense, I want him. Do you have any reason to believe he can’t play defense?

"Hasn't" doesn't necessarily mean "can't." As he's maturing, he may have recognized the need to up his defensive game. I hope and trust Coach Kruger and crew have discussed the need to improve his defense with him in order to gauge his commitment to improve in that area.

I can't stand Gregg Marshall. And it is true that WSU took a step back on defense this season playing in a better conference. Having said that, he simply does not give playing time to kids who don't defend at least adequately. And he definitely doesn't tolerate players who don't give good effort on that end. Their program was very surprised and disappointed to see Austin leave, and that wouldn't be the case if all he cared about is offense. So to those of you who think a culture change is necessary, you don't need to worry about this kid's attitude or approach.
