Oklahoma State guard Ferron Flavors Jr. reportedly submitted his name to the transfer portal on Tuesday, the first Oklahoma State basketball player to make such a decision since the end of the season.
GoPokes247.com first reported the story.
The senior, who is afforded an extra year of eligibility thanks to the NCAA’s blanket decision due to COVID-19, apparently wants to use that extra year at another school.
Flavors played just one year at Oklahoma State, after transferring to the Cowboys before the 2020-21 season from Cal Baptist. As a graduate transfer, he was able to play immediately. Because he was already on Oklahoma State’s roster when the NCAA made its eligibility decision, he can play another season of college basketball.
Flavors brought experience to an extremely young Cowboys team, but he never cracked the starting lineup on a regular basis. He did, however, offer some help off the bench, as he averaged 3.4 points per game.
His career-high at Oklahoma State was 12 points against Oakland. But, the emergence of players like Avery Anderson III and Rondel Walker, both recruited by head coach Mike Boynton Jr. out of high school, consigned Flavors to being a role player.
Flavors’ decision comes two days after Oklahoma State bowed out of the NCAA tournament, losing to Oregon State in the second round. It likely opens up a scholarship for Boynton use on the recruiting trail or in the transfer market. The Cowboys don’t have a signee yet for the 2021 class.
