OU men's basketball picks up transfer from Miss. St.

According to NewsOK, now former Mississippi State forward Romero Osby has confirmed that he will be transferring to Oklahoma.  Osby will have to sit out this upcoming season, but after that he will still have two full years of eligibility remaining.  Osby, who is 6'8" 230 pounds, averaged only 4.3 points and 2.5 rebounds per game last year for Miss St.  According to Osby, he had trouble working into the rotation on a consistent basis.

"I just feel like my versatility needed to be showcased, and I don’t feel like I had that chance to do that in the system," Osby told The Commercial (Miss.) Dispatch after announcing his intentions to transfer. "The guys that played ahead of me are good players, but I felt like I didn’t have an opportunity to show what kind of player I can be."

 Osby was ranked as a top 25 power forward coming out of high school and had offers from some impressive programs such as Kansas, Kentucky, Memphis, and texass.  With this transfer, OU has now filled all 13 available scholarships so it would appear that the roster transformation is complete.
