Former Sooner Umoja Gibson Handling Crowded Recruitment

Published

on

Former Oklahoma Sooners guard Umoja Gibson entered the transfer portal just before the May 1 deadline for one more season of college hoops. Gibson started his career at North Texas, playing three seasons for the Mean Green and averaging more than 10 points per game in each of the three. He then transferred to Oklahoma, starting 50 games for the Sooners in two years. This season, the 6-foot-1 guard averaged 13.3 points per game, starting all 35 games, and shooting 39% from three-point range.

CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein recently reported that Gibson has heard from Mississippi State, DePaul, SMU, Memphis, Florida, Kansas State, Miami, Nebraska, Texas A&M, and Vanderbilt since entering the transfer portal, making for a crowded recruitment full of high-major programs in need of a high-scoring, sharp-shooting guard.

Will Gibson head down to Gainesville and play for the Gators? Will he join Jerome Tang’s new-look squad at K-State? Many questions are yet to be answered in his recruitment, but it should be a fun one to track over the coming weeks.
