Oklahoma Sooners Men’s Basketball 2023-24 Offseason Roster Tracker

NCAA Basketball: Oklahoma at Kansas

The Oklahoma Sooners are working on assembling their 2023-24 men’s basketball roster and we’ll track every move here throughout the offseason.

Departures

G Joe Bamisile: He played in 21 games and averaged 4.0 points. After the season he transferred to VCU.

 

G Bijan Cortes: A two-year player for the Sooners, the backup point guard averaged 17 minutes per game. After the season he took his remaining two years of eligibility to Wichita State as a transfer.

F Jacob Groves: The brother of forward Tanner Groves, Jacob cracked the starting lineup full-time last season and averaged 6.8 points and 2.5 rebounds. After the season, with one remaining year of eligibility, he transferred to ACC power Virginia.

F Tanner Groves: After two seasons at Oklahoma, he was out of eligibility. He played out his final season with the Sooners as their second-leading scorer (10.2 points) and their leading rebounder (7.2).

F Jalen Hill: A solid forward who was one of the few remaining holdovers from the Lon Kruger era, Hill was a full-time starter and averaged 9.7 points and 5.8 rebounds per game. After the season he transferred to UNLV.

G C.J. Noland: One of many guards that had to share playing time last season, Noland played 14 minutes and averaged 3.2 points. Looking for more playing time, he transferred to Saint Louis after the season.

G Benny Schröder: He didn’t play much as a freshman, logging time in six games. After the season he decided to transfer to George Washington.

G Grant Sherfield: Like Tanner Groves, Sherfield was out of eligibility after the season. He led the Sooners with 15.2 points per game. Like Groves, he’s pursuing a pro career.

 

Arrivals Via Transfer

F John Hugley IV (from Pitt): The 6-foot-9 forward played just six games last season due to injury. But his career numbers are solid — He averaged 12.2 points and 6.6 rebounds. His sophomore year (2021-22) saw him average 17.7 points and 7.1 rebounds while earning All-ACC Honorable-Mention honors.

G Javian McCollum (from Siena): Last season McCollum averaged 15.9 points, 3.9 assists and 2.1 rebounds per contest and was named to the 2022-23 All-Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Third Team. He’s a 36 percent 3-point shooter.

G Le’Tre Darthard (from Utah Valley): Darthard has one year left after three seasons at UVU and one previous season at the juco level. In 87 career games at UVU he averaged 10.5 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.4 assist. He’s a 38 percent 3-point shooter.

G Rivaldo Soares (from Oregon): The 6-foot-6 guard was a part-time starter in two seasons with the Ducks, averaging 6.0 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists. He started his college career at South Plains College, where he was NJCAA All-America First Team.

Expected to Return

G Otega Oweh: The highly-regarded recruit became a starter late in the season after carving out a bench role. He averaged 4.8 points and 2.1 rebounds last season, but showed more promise than the box score indicates.

F Sam Godwin: He gave the Sooners some solid minutes off the bench, averaging nearly five points and more than three rebounds per game. He enters next season with limited competition for playing time.

F Yaya Keita: He played just two games last season. He transferred in from Missouri, where he suffered a season-ending knee injury in February of 2022.

 

G Milos Uzan: The point guard earned a starting job early and earned coach Porter Moser’s trust. He averaged 7.6 points and 2.7 rebounds while dishing out 96 assists, second only to Sherfield.  

G Jake Moser: Moser is a walk-on who played in seven games last season.

G Blake Seacat: Seacat is a walk-on but could opt to return next season because he has a COVID waiver.

C Luke Northweather: The tallest player on the roster at 6-foot-11, Northweather redshirted last season.

Class of 2023 Signees

F Jacolb Cole, 6-foot-7, Link Academy (Branson Mo.): Cole is a consensus four-star player who is considered by most to be a Top 100 national player. He could give the Sooners a lift immediately.

F Kaden Cooper, 6-foot-5, The Skill Factory (Atlanta, Ga.): Like Cole, Cooper is a consensus four-star player that has the chance to play right away for the Sooners.
