Earlier today, Lon Kruger and the University of Oklahoma announced sophomore guard, Je'lon Hornbeak's intentions to transfer.
Sophomore guard Je'lon Hornbeak has decided to transfer. Averaged 5.4 points and 2.1 assists in his 2 years. http://t.co/iV20pijuGo #Sooners— Oklahoma Basketball (@OU_MBBall) April 15, 2014
In two seasons, Hornbeak played in 61 games while averaging 20.5 minutes per contest. After seeing progress, the decision is met with a bit of sadness as the 2012 class showed great promise. Regardless, CCM wishes the best in any future endeavors as we remember Hornbeak was a part of the rebuilding process here at Oklahoma.
However, with the recent news of the transfer, it does free up a scholarship for Coach Kruger. A handful of big men, all 6-7 or taller have given their verbal commitments to OU. Knowing this, Kruger hinted at finding a guard who can provide valuable minutes off the bench.
We learned about this decision this morning, and even though it's late in the recruiting game we'll try to add a player at his position. - Lon Kruger via SoonerSports.com
