Last season, he averaged 29.2 points, 11.4 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 2.4 blocks and 2.0 steals per game while shooting 71.6 percent from the field and 38.8 percent from three-point range.

"He had a dominating senior year and gives us tremendous size," Moser said. "Luke is all about winning and is a sponge when it comes to learning. I see him having rapid growth as a player when he gets to Norman and am excited to add him to the team."
