Oklahoma Lands Commitment From Transfer Guard

Javian McCollum comes to the Sooners after playing two years with Siena.

It took a little time, but Oklahoma has made their first splash in the transfer portal.

Siena transfer guard Javian McCollum announced his commitment to the Sooners on Wednesday, coming to OU after playing two years with the Saints.

Last season, the 6-foot-1, 170-pounder played a big role for Siena, playing in just under 31 minutes per game and averaging 15.9 points per contest to lead the Saints.

Out of high school in the class of 2021, McCollum was a 3-star prospect in Fort Myers, FL and was rated as the No. 33 combo guard in the country by 247Sports’ composite metric.

In his senior year, he led his team to a Class 6A Regional title averaging north of 20 points per game.

After a solid freshman campaign with Siena that saw him largely serve as a bench player, McCollum saw his role improve significantly in his sophomore year becoming a starter for 25 games.

With the vast amount of turnover for Porter Moser heading into his third campaign, McCollum looks to certainly come to Norman with the expectation of being a potential starter and forming an exciting back court duo with Milos Uzan.

With still plenty more open spots to work with, this is likely just the first of a slew of portal additions for Moser and company in the coming weeks.
