Oklahoma Lands Siena Transfer Guard Javian McCollum

Porter Moser and the Oklahoma Sooners have secured their first addition through the transfer portal. Former Siena guard Javian McCollum announced his commitment on Twitter Wednesday.

“What’s up Sooner Nation!! #committed,” McCollum said in a tweet.

Last season, McCollum led the Saints with 15.9 points per game on 43% shooting, including 35.6% from beyond the arc. He also dished out 3.9 assists per game to go along with 2.1 rebounds per contest. In providing that production, he started 25 of 27 games for a team that finished 17-15 overall and 11-9 in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference.

The year before as a true freshman, McCollum averaged 6.7 points per game, plus 1.8 assists and 0.9 rebounds per contest. He shot it at an even better 48.2% clip, including 42.6% from beyond the arc. McCollum logged 18.1 minutes per game while participating in 24 outings overall, two of those starts.

 

His entering the fold for Oklahoma helps alleviate some of the damage this offseason, which has featured a number of players entering the transfer portal. Those include guard Joe Bamisile, who recently announced his move closer to home to VCU, guard Bijan Cortes, who went to Wichita State, guard CJ Noland, who’s off to Saint Louis, guard Benny Schröder, now on to George Washington, and forwards Jacob Groves and Jalen Hill, who are still undecided on their destinations.

Moser’s Sooners finished the 2022-23 campaign with a 15-17 overall record and 5-13 mark in the Big 12. They missed the NCAA Tournament for the second consecutive season.
