Oklahoma lands transfer, former four-star recruit
Oklahoma is set to lose two perimeter scoring options at the end of the season in Buddy Hield and Isaiah Cousins.
On Saturday, Lon Kruger landed a perimeter piece for the future in sharpshooter Austin Grandstaff, according to Jeff Goodman and Jeff Borzello of ESPN. The 6-foot-5 shooting guard had a brief career at Ohio State, playing only 10 games for the Buckeyes before he decided to transfer. He was a consensus four-star recruit, rated as the No. 60 overall player in the Class of 2015 by Scout.
"They have really turned the program around, and they do everything the right way," Grandstaff told ESPN of why he chose the Sooners. "The players work really hard and are really close. They let their guards play and those guys have all really improved since they got there."
In his one semester at Ohio State, he averaged 4.4 points, shooting 33 percent from three.
The Sooners retain guard Jordan Woodard, currently averaging 14.9 points per game, next season. Grandstaff will join him in the backcourt once he becomes eligible after the fall semester.
Grandstaff joins an incoming class that includes shooting guard Kameron McGusty, Kristian Doolittle and junior college transfer point guard Darrion Strong.
