Oklahoma Lands Georgia Tech Transfer Jalon Moore

Oklahoma men's basketball coach Porter Moser.

The Oklahoma Sooners landed a veteran forward in the transfer portal with the addition of Georgia Tech big man Jalon Moore.

After two solid years in Atlanta with the Yellow Jackets, Moore brings in 7.6 points, and 4.7 rebounds per game, to Norman on 43.1% shooting from the field.

 

Coming out of high school, Moore was listed as a three-star prospect courtesy of 247Sports, as well as the 44th-ranked small forward in the nation, and the fourth-ranked player in the state of Alabama.

His best game of the season last year came against NC State on January 17th where Moore led the Yellow Jackets in their 78-66 loss with 17 points and eight boards.

Porter Moser and the Sooners get some much needed help at the forward position after Oklahoma lost both four-star SF Jalen Hill in the transfer portal to UNLV, and three-star SF Jacob Groves to Virginia.

The Sooners finished last season with an overall record of 15-17, 5-13 in conference play, good for last place in the Big 12. If Porter Moser plans to get back on track at Oklahoma this season, bringing in players who can contribute at a high level in the transfer portal is a must. With the addition of Jalon Moore, the Sooners took a step in the right direction.
