The Miami Hurricanes basketball team received a major boost on Monday with former Oklahoma guard Kameron McGusty announcing that he’d be transferring in to Jim Larranaga’s program.
“First off I would like to thank god for the opportunity too be able to play at another Univeristy,” McGusty wrote in a Twitter post published on Monday afternoon. “Also I want to thank my friends and family for the support they have given With that being said, I have decided to commit to the University of Miami!”
Originally a 4-star recruit and a top-50 player nationally out of Texas, McGusty committed to the Sooners in the Class of 2016. He’d go on to become a major contributor at Oklahoma in each of his two seasons with the program.
In 2016-17, McGusty played in 31 games and made 17 starts. He averaged 10.9 points and 2.2 rebounds per game while shooting 35.2 percent from beyond the 3-point line, making the Big 12 All-Newcomer Team.
As a sophomore, McGusty moved primarily to a bench role, playing in 32 games an making 8 starts while averaging just 18.5 minutes per game as opposed to 24.9 in his freshman season. However, he still averaged 8.0 points and 1.9 rebounds per game while making 33.3 percent of his 3-point attempts.
McGusty will have to sit out the 2018-19 season as a transfer student, but he’ll have two remaining seasons of eligibility at Miami.
