A position that had become a bit concerning for Oklahoma’s basketball team has now become a position of depth. On Tuesday the Sooners added another guard to their roster by way of transfer.
Austin Reaves became OU’s third transfer guard, since last season ended, when the former Wichita State Shocker committed to the Sooners. At 6-5/179, Reaves is a significant threat from beyond the three-point line and can play either the one or two guard position.
He played in 33 games last season, averaging 21.5 minutes per game with 11 starts. He averaged 8.1 points per game while shooting 42.5 percent from 3-point range and 45 percent from the floor. Reaves also pulled down 3.1 rebounds per game and averaged 2.0 assists.
Since Oklahoma’s elimination from the NCAA Tournament the Sooners have lost Trae Young to the NBA while also seeing Jordan Shepherd and Kameron McGusty transfer out of the program.
They have replaced those three with transfers. Joining Reaves in Norman will be Miles Reynolds, from Pacific, and Aaron Calixte of Maine. Reynolds and Calixte are both graduate transfers and are immediately available to play but Reaves will have to sit out the upcoming season before having two years of eligibility remaining.
