Five-Star Transfer PG Max Abmas Visiting Texas: Report

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament First Round-Oral Roberts vs Duke

A report from On3’s Jamie Shaw recently stated that Kansas State and Texas “continue to come up” as the potential landing spots for Oral Roberts point guard and five-star transfer Max Abmas, and after taking in Manhattan last weekend, he’s taking in Austin Wednesday. That’s according to a report by Stadium’s Jeff Goodman.

 

Abmas is the NCAA’s active total points leader and was the top overall scorer in college basketball in 2020-21. Over the span of his career, Abmas has averaged nearly 21 points per game, and has averaged 23 points per game over the last three seasons.

With Abmas running point, the ORU Golden Eagles were 30-5 in 2022-23, and went a perfect 18-0 in conference play. The Golden Eagles made the NCAA Tournament this season as a No. 12 seed but were eliminated by Duke in the Round of 64.

Wherever Abmas ends up, he will immediately elevate his new team’s offensive production, and it sure sounds like he could be giving Big 12 defenses fits during his final season in college basketball.

If, indeed, it’s in Austin, the Longhorns will gladly welcome him. Marcus Carr exhausted all of his eligibility, and Arterio Morris and Rowan Brumbaugh are on the way out as well, meaning there’s some extra room in the backcourt.
