One the athletic writers tweeted OSU.

Yep, theyíll look at in state schools. Definitely likely TU, but not done deal.

Basically want to avoid a repeat of KU at any other school.

Sounds like this comes down to who makes the best pitch: Boynton, Moser or Haith... based on the rosters, Bryce should have an opportunity to play at any of the 3

Thatís the thing though, you can still promise what you can offer & see if itís enough. Tell him heíll get the opportunity to try for it, I mean Harmon still had quite a bit of ball handling duties. However, Moserís offense doesnít offer as much freedom.

Everyone knew what was going to happen at Ku. Dribble handoffs and stand in the corner.

Self wouldnít let Wiggins go.... he isnít letting Bryce.


Ou coaches told him that. But kids gotta make their own decisions

Yeah I knew it wouldnít work & didnít see him as a fit there. I see Harmonís role as perfect for him, secondary ball handler & mainly focus on scoring.

I would think if harmon is secondary ball handler then that would leave BT to do what he wants...be the "pg"....just my take.

as in not allowing a transfer within league or not letting him be the creator?

As in not giving a freshman like Thompson freedom to run with the ball.

That's on Rod for pushing the kid to Kansas when Self has NEVER allowed a freshman guard to run the show.

Yeah, coach and others have pretty much nailed this one. He wasn’t given freedom to run the offense and drive. Bryce was never a shooter, yet was forced into that type of role at KU, because that’s what they do.

He wants to run the offense, he wants to drive. He doesn’t want to stand at the 3 point line and spot up.


Tulsa can/has offered that type of role. OK state definitely can’t with Anderson as the main PG. OU is an unknown due to a new coach. Had Kruger and Carlin been here, I think OU would be a real leader here. With Moser, I don’t know that there’s a strong connection to convince him the KU thing won’t happen here.


Also, don’t worry about in conference transfers. That rule goes away before basketball season starts next year.

Interesting, seemed to be the opposite. All you heard throughout the process was Rod and Bill Self.

Hope Bryce doesn't make another mistake by overcompensating in where he chooses to go next and rushing the process.

Rod just pushed his former HC & Self pouncing on that. Bryce & Self was never going to be a fit.

I believe he silently verbally committed to our staff out of high school. They were VERY confident we had him signed. Then Self offered him PG role. Self lied.

Trae's doing what he can to get BT to Norman. He reportedly sent him a tweet that read, “Come on home lil bro !! #BoomerSooner.”

Point Guard spot at OSU is open. They are looking to add a PG, a shooter and a Big.

I've read St. Johns as a possible destination.
