South Carolina adds Florida Atlantic grad transfer Booker

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) Former Oklahoma and Florida Atlantic guard Frank Booker has joined South Carolina for his final season.

Booker is a 6-foot-4 guard from Augusta, Georgia, who spent his first two seasons with the Sooners before moving on to Florida Atlantic. Booker is a graduate transfer and eligible to play immediately for the Gamecocks.

Booker averaged five points a game as a backup with Oklahoma. He started 10 of 30 games for the Owls last season, averaging 5.7 points.

Booker will add experience and bolster a backcourt that lost three starters in Sindarius Thornwell, Duane Notice and P.J. Dozier from last year's Final Four run.

South Carolina's projected backcourt rotation next season includes two first-year backups from this past season in Hassani Gravett and Rakym Felder and Delaware transfer Kory Holden.
