Oklahoma adds basketball transfer; Trae Young eyeing shoe deal

Welcome to the Wednesday edition of our Oklahoma DieHards morning roundup, where we take you through all the biggest headlines around Oklahoma athletics.

Basketball transfer

Oklahoma men’s basketball is adding former Wichita State guard Austin Reaves as a transfer. He will have to sit out the 2018-19 season but will have two years of eligibility remaining.

Reaves averaged 8.1 points per game for Wichita State after becoming a starter. He shot a blistering 42.5 percent from the 3-point line on 3.8 attempts per game. He will be a key addition in future seasons.

Trae Young buzz

Former Oklahoma point guard Trae Young is apparently a big deal in the shoe game. He has offers from Nike, adidas and Under Armour. However, apparently Puma is making a push to return to the basketball shoe game, according to ESPN’s Nick DePaula.

Young is also preparing his body for basketball. Young reportedly added a least 11 pounds of muscle since he played at Oklahoma. That should help him tremendously as he heads toward the NBA combine.
