Oklahoma Sooners Basketball Recruiting: OU receives commitment from grad transfer Miles Reynolds

The Chicago native averaged 13.3 PPG at Pacific in 2017-18

NCAA Basketball: Gonzaga at Pacific Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

The Oklahoma Sooners have been hitting the grad transfer market pretty hard in light of recent departures, and one domino fell in their favor when Pacific guard Miles Reynolds committed to the OU on Saturday morning, according to multiple reports. Reynolds is in town for the weekend on an official visit.

The Chicago native averaged 13.3 PPG at Pacific in 2017-18 after sitting out the 2016-17 season as a transfer from Saint Louis University. As a sophomore at SLU, Reynolds averaged 8.2 PPG and shot just a shade over 27 percent from three-point range, but that percentage went up to 37 percent in his lone season at Pacific. What’s even more astounding is that his three-point percentage was all the way down at a shade over 10 percent, which just goes to show how much the guy has worked on his shot over the years.

Oklahoma edged out the likes of Ohio State and Nevada for the services of Reynolds, who will be immediately eligible to play in 2018-19. The 6’2” guard can be described as somewhat of a combo guard, which leaves the door open to still add prospective Maine grad transfer Aaron Calixte, who is more of a true PG. Calixte is scheduled to visit OU this coming weekend and recently include OU in his top 5.

UPDATE: It’s official.
