In the aftermath of a first round loss in the NCAA Tournament, Kameron McGusty becomes the latest to request a release from the Oklahoma Sooners. Combined with Jordan Shepherd, the two leave question marks when it comes the future of the program.
A four-star product out of Katy, Texas, McGusty was ranked the nation’s No. 41 overall prospect coming out of high school. In 2018, the sophomore averaged 8 points per game alongside 1.9 rebounds in 32 games this season. However, the 6’5” guard remained one of the most consistent shooters. Knocking down 42.3 percent of all attempts, McGusty provided a boost when called upon. This comes after gaining valuable experience as a freshman playing in 31 games in 2017.
Despite announcing his intentions to transfer, McGusty failed to name candidates. Those details will likely leak in the coming days. In his absence, Rashard Odomes and Christian James are expected to carry the load in the back court and Brady Manek in the front court.
