ESPN’s Fran Fraschilla placed his prediction on social media for Kelvin Sampson and the Houston Cougars to land Oklahoma guard Milos Uzan in the transfer portal.

Uzan is currently visiting Houston’s campus after electing to enter the transfer portal after spending the previous two seasons with Oklahoma.

 

“Now that he’s on campus, I expect Oklahoma sophomore PG Milos Uzan to commit to Houston,” Fraschilla said. “Very solid pickup who reminds me of Andrew Nembhard. Remember, Coogs are two-deep at every other spot.”

Uzan would be a big pickup for Houston as the Cougars are set to return four of their five starters from 2023-24. The lone departure from the lineup is Big 12 Player of the Year, and All-American guard Jamal Shead, who is electing to forgo his final season of eligibility to enter the 2024 NBA Draft.

Uzan, a former member of the Big 12 All-Freshman team, was a key player for Porter Moser’s group last season, averaging 9.0 points, 4.4 assists, and 3.4 rebounds per game. His biggest game of the season came against Providence in the Jumpman Invitational on December 5th, where he posted 17 points, 12 rebounds, and four steals.

While the addition would be big for Houston, the Sooners have a lot of work to do to replace their losses from the starting lineup. Still, with this offseason shaping up to include one of the busiest portal cycles in college basketball history, Porter Moser should have some options available for replacement.
