Colorado State guard Kris Martin announced he will transfer to Oklahoma, following the resignation of the Rams' coach Larry Eustachy.
I have officially been granted my full release from Colorado State. I would like to thank the team, fans, and the school for the support and love shown this year. I am very grateful for the opportunity and will continue my college career at another university.— Kris Martin (@BeGreatKris) March 26, 2018
I am excited to say that after speaking with my family and the people closet to me, I have decided to commit and continue my basketball journey at The University of Oklahoma! #Boomer #Sooner pic.twitter.com/VgU6DQ9GM7— Kris Martin (@BeGreatKris) March 27, 2018
The Sooners aren't the first Oklahoma program Martin has played for. Prior to sitting out a year at Colorado State due to NCAA transfer rules, he played two years for Oral Roberts. Martin averaged 13.2 points and shot 40.8 percent from the field during the 2016-17 season.
Oklahoma is looking to fill four scholarship spots after the graduation of senior Khadeem Lattin, freshman guard Trae Young's NBA Draft declaration and the transfer of sophomore guards Jordan Shepherd and Kameron McGusty.
Martin joins commit Jamal Bieniemy, a guard from Texas, as the Sooners' newest additions.
